Folklore. Why folklore?
We’ll be getting to that shortly. You can follow on Facebook in the meantime…
THE IDEA:
Cultural observances and commentary through the eyes of a folklorist, oral & social historian. Diving into the nitty-gritty of who, how and why we are.
TOPICS: 

Food, family, internet, traditions, music, dance, children’s culture, arts, superstitions, social media & history. Prejudice, politics, gender, sex, feminism, racism, conflict and other contemporary issues.

The everyday aspects of our lives that inform who we are through ‘intangible culture’.

Folklore is the perfect second skin. From under its hide, we can see all the shimmering, shadowy uncertainties of the world.” ― Jane Yolen

Blog title taken from: G. Seal; “The Hidden Culture: Folklore in Australian Society” (Oxford University Press, 1989).
