ANT 354: Anthropology and Folklore

3 credits

This course will use a cross-cultural comparative method to look at the nature of oral and written folk traditions including the folk tale, ballad, corrido, myth, urban legend, heroic legend, and fable. It will also examine performed art such as folk music and drama, pictorial art, and the creation of material culture. We will look at how folk traditions are created and maintained, how tradition operates to define identity, and the generation of ethnic tourism. We will focus on local cultural traditions and use the Valley as a resource area. Offered Fall (2017, 2021).
