CFP: Reading Group on Animals and Mythical Creatures

The Myth Reading Group at the University of Essex Centre for Myth Studies have announced a CFP on Animals and Mythical Creatures for the Autumn Term 2018. They invite proposals from anyone who is interested in any aspect of mythological animals and creatures and addresses the theme from a mythological perspective across cultures, periods, and media. Please contact them with suggestions for works or topics to read and discuss. They are also accepting proposals for video conferencing (by Skype) for those who cannot travel to Colchester.
