Title: Meet Me Outside: Mythological Courage and Cowardice Beyond the Hero /Abstract: This talk will examine the representation of courage and cowardice beyond the paradigmatic hero in early Greek myth. We will look at examples of courage on the battlefield among foreigners and women, and consider why non-elites seem to be excluded from the kleos economy. This study reveals some of the “hard lines” that limit the mythological imagination, suggesting an enduring anxiety about internal stasis.
