Artful Sport: The Faust Legend and the Perils of Young Adulthood
The Faust legend follows who sells his soul for knowledge. Eager to go beyond the limits placed upon human beings, Dr. Faustus trades his soul for short-lived pleasures and knowledge far beyond which he can gain through time and study.

Students, of course, face a similar choice: exchange something precious for some short-term and immediate gain. In this webinar, Winston Brady and Josh Herring will examine the Faust legend as it appears in Christopher Marlowe and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, its manifestations in contemporary culture from works as varied from The Little Mermaid to comic book supervillains.

Then, Josh and Winston will wrap it up with ways that help students consider major choices that face them in these years, and how they can weigh the consequences of their actions carefully to become who they are meant to be.
