How utterly cool is this? Mythgard Institute will be offering a 12-week course, starting on August 24th, and taught by Dr. Amy H. Sturgis, that will examine Star Wars and its impact on popular culture, the lasting meaning behind the epic, and much more.

From the course page:

As anyone who has ever staged a mock lightsaber duel or made an imaginary jump to lightspeed knows, Star Wars is a shared language that unites multiple generations across the planet. What traditions and ideas inspired that galaxy a long time ago and far, far away? How has the Star Wars universe expanded and evolved since its debut in 1977? What can we expect from its future incarnations? Join award-winning scholar Dr. Amy H. Sturgis as she examines the fabric of the Star Wars story and its participatory fan culture to discover the lasting meaning behind the epic and appreciate its unprecedented impact on film, fiction, and popular culture. Don’t move along. This is the class you’re looking for.
