University of Illinois Press, 2003
excerpt from book cover: Eight Words for the Study of Expressive Culture is a thoughtful, interdisciplinary examination by leading folklorists of the key words that are integral to the formulation of ideas about the diversity of human creativity. This book is a much-needed study of keywords that are frequently used but not easily explained. Anchored by Burt Feintuch’s cogent introduction, the book features essays by Dorothy Noyes, Gerald L. Pocius, Jeff Todd Titon, Trudier Harris-Lopez, Deborah A. Kapchan, Mary Hufford, Henry Glassie, and Roger D. Abrahams.
