Folklore | Introduction to Folklore in the U.S.
F131 | 26425 | Kiss
In this class, we will examine folklore and tradition in the United
States by focusing on creativity and expressive behavior of folk
groups and individuals in everyday life. All three forms of folklore
will be studied: verbal, material, and customary. In class meetings,
we will study examples of traditional arts and customs, including
those of ethnic, regional, and religious groups. As we focus on the
various traditions and folklore forms, we will use video and audio
recordings, and study the course readings in detail via discussions,
class activities, and presentations.
