From Dr. Conway,

"This course is an introduction to the cross-disciplinary field of folklore. We will explore the history of mountain music, lore, material culture, and custom. There will be fieldwork experiences in and out of class as possible  Upon completion of this course, students should have a working knowledge of folklore study and a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Students will gain knowledge about Southern and Appalachian culture; they will explore the interaction between folklore and literature and will develop interpretive skills."
