Why I want to study folklore: Hope!

The Kitchen is the center of the universe. All that is, seen and unseen, has its beginning in the Kitchen. All things are drawn to the Kitchen, from which all good, tasty things are made. Amen

Why I want to study folklore: Hope!

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
I read an older piece on Wednesday on the future of folklore. It is a bit long as an introduction but it was written by one of my favorite folklorists and states very well what excites me about folklore and what I wish to do as a folklorist.

I read a journal article in Journal of Folklore Research on Wednesday at Suzzalo and a citation led me to this article. It is originally from a talk he delivered to the department of Folklore at Indiana University in a series on the future of Folklore in the academy. I wish to be part of the endeavor that he is outlining. I also hope I will write as clearly and as well as he does.

This is a link to an online version.
