Congratulations!  You made it.


In great literature, art, music and film, we learn from the experiences of the characters. Geography of Self is a learning experience is designed to complement a reading of Homer's Iliad. 



Read books, write stories, talk to people, play games and find your place in the world.  Here are some ideas:


  • Read one of the novels highlighted in Geography of Self

  • Research the monomyth across cultures

  • Compare the Greek hero Achilles with Rama from the Hindu Ramayana.

  • Research one or more of the people, historical movements explored in Unlikely Heroes

  • Create a multimedia biography on one of the unlikely heroes and share it.



American Civil Rights Movement, the Tiannamen Square massacre in China, China's Cultural Revolution, Apartheid in South Africa, Australia's Stolen Generation, the indigenous cultures of New Zealand, civil war in Somalia.
