Myths for Modernity

This event has already taken place.

Host: HowTheLightGetsIn
Location: Hay-on-Wye
Speaker: Justina Robson, Jim Crace, Nicholas Royle, Hilary Lawson

In our supposedly rational world we imagine ourselves to have outgrown myths. Myths are for others and the past. But is this an illusion and could it be that myths are essential? Is it time, in our era of deconstructed meanings, to create a new set of modern myths to help us navigate our way through life?

Award-winning novelist Jim Crace, postmodern cultural theorist and writer Nicholas Royle, and mythmaker Justina Robson seek out new mythologies.

HowTheLightGetsIn is a festival of music and philosophy at Hay.
