For this essay, argue folklore’s place in our current society and culture. Think about the contemporary legends we’ve read about, the discussions we’ve had about the Internet and social media, and the current issues our society faces. How is folklore changing (or staying the same) to meet the needs of our current culture?
This paper should be 4-5 pages, double spaced with 12 point font and one inch margins. It should include an arguable thesis that states where you think folklore fits in our society/it’s purpose in our society. You should use at least two scholarly sources which can come from readings we’ve done for class or sources you find on your own. In addition to the scholarly sources, you may use non-scholarly sources (films, podcasts, news articles, etc.) as well as your own opinions and experiences with folklore to back up your argument.
