Folklore and Cultural Studies

Posted on: January 21, 2019

Folklore is the study of human creation that continues from generation to generation. It is the foundation of identity of the folk groups. It comprises of the oral traditions (folk tales, folk epics, folk ballads, oral poetry, proverbs and sayings), performing arts (music, dance, drama, games), beliefs and practices (customs, religions, rituals, festivals etc.) As well as the knowledge and production of material culture (vernacular architecture, furniture, household items, food ways, etc.) Most of these topics are also included in the intangible cultural heritage with traditional knowledge. The emerging discipline of cultural studies helps to explain how the groups create and transform individual experiences, social relations and power.
