2006: How is This Folklore? : Negotiating the Boundaries of Folklore Theory and Practice


The OSU Folklore Student Association conference to be held on May 19-20, 2006, at the Mershon Center at the Ohio State University. This conference addresses the question of whether there is a fundamental "grand theory" that defines the folklore discipline. Is folklore an object or a lens or both? Presentations for this conference are expected to contribute to a broader discussion of the role of folklore in public, applied, and academics spheres.
