Folkore, or more broadly, folklife, is the study of all of the customs, traditions, behaviours and cultural products of a culture, subculture or community. I am particularly interested in ritual and ceremony, such as religious and rite of passage practices.
I am also interested in arts practices such as music, dance, visual art and, of course, storytelling. Within storytelling is mythology, which will feature prominently in this blog – to learn about people through their creativity is exceedingly exciting to me!
Keep and eye out for my Wednesday’s Witches series in this category as well as in the ‘Pop. Culture and Media’ category!
