Myths, Folklore and Indian Culture
Culture is political. It is at the same time a highly contested realm of social life where meanings are determined and debated. Concentration in Folklore and Myth is a liberal education in and of itself. This encourages the study of any given society through its language and culture, offering an array of choices for drawing on a variety of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. To focus on the folklore and myth of a society (at regional as well as national levels) is to understand how that society defines itself through epics, music, folktales, legends, dramas, dance, rituals, “beliefs,” proverbs, customs, law codes, festival celebrations, “wisdom literature,” and many other forms of expressive culture. To study the folklore and myth of any group is to discover how that group identifies itself in relation to other groups.
Papers reflecting themes and issues related to different aspects or any aspect of Myth, Folklore in India will be appreciated.
A reputed publisher will publish the volume with an ISBN (International Standard Book Number).
