Abstract

This is an interdisciplinary session which aims to discuss and draw attention to the development of early myths and literary material from the medieval to the modern periods. Clash of cultures can be taken to signify the coexistence within literature of themes, legends and literary motives, which develop and transform in relationship to the perception of authors. This type of transformation is an ongoing motif within disciplines and across times.
