"Mycomythology: Myths and Legends of the Fungal World"
In this interactive class we'll learn about how cultures both ancient and current interact with fungi through myths and stories. After an introduction to the field of ethnomycology the class will choose the destinations on our world tour of mycomythology! Learn about mushroom eating spirits from jungles of the Amazon, the mysteries of flying reindeer, the secrets to immortality, and much more!
Sonia Horowitz is an independent researcher from Mason, Wisconsin. Sonia specializes in ethnomycology with a heavy focus on mycomythology. She believes that by learning how mushrooms fit into the stories created by humanity we can rediscover many important things about our fungal friends.
As always, try to come around 6:15 to meet, greet, and share in some snacks!
IT'S THE LAW
In 2010, fungi were incorporated into Chile's Environmental Law (No .19,300, General Bases of the Environment, 1994) such that the Ministry of Environment must ensure fungi are classified in a national inventory using scientific and IUCN Red-Listing criteria.
MCG features monthly meetings each year between February and November on a variety of fungi-related topics. To view some of our previous meetings go HERE.
