V. Individualized Project
Each student will pursue a semester-long project which focuses on some special aspect of the
heroic journey. In this project you will incorporate references to and analysis of heroic journeys
from around the world, but especially from the ancient Mediterranean. Preparation for this
project must include library research, analysis of historical evidence, and original work. The
central product of this project can take the form of a research paper, creative writing, artwork, or
any other work which deals with material covered in course readings or discussions. All central
products must be supplemented by a written statement (c.600 words) which contains the
following information: 1.) a summary of the project; 2.) a description of its preparation; 3.) a list
of at least five works consulted (i.e., a bibliography) and an explanation of how these works were
used in the project; and 4.) an explanation of original aspects of this project. This individualized
project will be 20% of your final grade.
NOTE: Course books can be cited in the bibliography but only as complements to at least five additional works.
