Students learn how the ancient myth of Pygmalion and the statue that comes to life has remained culturally relevant up to the present day. Students trace how the story has been adapted in a variety of genres, media, and time periods to convey fantasies and fears about technology, gender, and the reshaping of bodies and identities. Students employ the skills of close reading and comparative analysis to investigate literary and cinematic adaptations of the myth.
