The dynamic and creative development of mythologies is a part of human culture. The mythological themes and topics explain the origin of environment, human and non-human beings, Earth and Sky. One of the oldest abilities of the divine, heroes and creatures is metamorphosis, the transformation of his physical form of shape. We can trace the metamorphosis in the oldest forms of religiousity and narrativity, found in literature and epics.
The unprecedented accumulation of digital data and data corpora allows to follow development of mythology on the basis of a much larger amount of material than ever before. Also new findings from different eras changes our ability to see the long period processes. At the same time, there is little information about many nations and cultures, which the conference could help to do more visible.
The conference will focus on these and related topics in order to examine the data and perspectives in the field and to explore the mythological traditions worldwide. We will focus on the theoretical possibilities of examining the mythologies, scholars and academic schools in the study of the mythologies, analyze the old and new methodologies and even the position and patterns of myths in contemporary society.
