WATCH RECORDING BELOW

Stories of transformation abound in our world—in mythology, folklore, literature and real life. Shapeshifters alter form, disguises alter appearance and journeys alter character. But over time, through telling and re-telling, stories themselves transform as well. And perspectives can shift understanding, so a hero in one land becomes a monster in another. In this presentation, explore stories of transformation and stories that transform, across the globe, from ancient to modern times, and consider what our ever-changing stories reveal about human nature.
