Project #43667 - Divine Gender Roles Matrix

Divine Gender Roles Matrix (reading material attached)

 

Based on the Week 3 readings choose one god (divine male) and one goddess (divine female).  Your chosen god and goddess must come from different myths.  You must use complete myths from the Week 3 readings.  Do not use the myths that Leonard & McClure give as examples when discussing a larger topic at the beginning of the chapters.  Instead, find myths with specific titles like “The Fire Goddess”, “White Buffalo Calf Woman” “Callisto and Arcas”, “Thor’s Duel with Hrungnir”, etc.

 

 

Complete the matrix by answering each of the questions for both selected divinities.

Divinity Name: 

Culture of Origin:

Goddess Column

Divinity Name:

Culture of Origin:

1.     Using the specific roles from the first part Chapter 3 (Goddesses as Literary Archetypes) or Chapter 4 (Images of the Masculine), describe the divinity’s role in the myth you chose.

 

 

 

2.     Within the myth, how does this divinity interact with or compare to divinities of the same gender and to divinities of the opposite gender?  How does their role (from question 1) influence how they interact? 

 

 

 

3.     What are the divinity’s attributes, such as divine powers or characteristics?  How do these attributes align with their role and their gender?

 

 

 

4.     Identify one character from our modern culture that shares characteristics of each divinity and explain why you chose each character. What real-life ideals does this divine role represent? How attainable are these ideals?  You should choose a different character for each response.

 

 

 

Summary: Write a 150- to 350-word short essay addressing the following: Why do so many cultures have divinities in similar roles?
