Expanded Course Description
This Arts and Letters group satisfying course introduces students to the theories and methods used in the study of folklore and popular culture. Students will examine a diversity of approaches to the description and analysis of culture, including popular genres and phenomena such as folk narratives, legends, rituals, ethnic and gender stereotypes, cultural performances, subcultures, body politics, and the commodification of youth culture. Special focus will be given to issues of gender, identity and ethnicity, and to the ways that folklore and popular culture reflect or challenge dominant ideologies. The course requires that students engage in major issues of the discipline through the analysis of popular and expressive culture in relation to broader U.S. social contexts.
