What is expected from you?

You will present the myth of your choice (you have assigned yourself to one before the course started in this file) in a visual way. You work together in a group of 3-5 students. It is up to you to get in touch with each other. Especially the last group will have to work in advance as they only have one week between their class and the final Symposium.

The most obvious way to present the myth is designing a poster, but it would be great to see videos or other visual crafts as well*.

During the symposium your group is considered being the expert of the myth you signed up for and hopefully you will be able to confirm or bust the myth.

Still lost? These are some different angles you could choose for your poster:
  • What would you want to know about this topic if you hadn’t been to the class?
  • Pick a specific theory from the class and present more background information.
  • Summarize the seminar in visuals.

You could also check out some of last years posters.

Prize for the best poster!

All the visitors (so you too!) can vote for the best poster based on content, originality, clarity and design. The winning group will receive a surprise!

*We will print the posters for you, we could help with setting you up with video-recording material or we can see what we can do for any other request!
