Content Biases in Contemporary Folklore - BAARS
Lecture Room 2, 43 Woodland Road
Dr Joe Stubbersfield, University of Durham
This talk will discuss a number of studies which primarily examine content biases using contemporary folklore so as to expand our knowledge of how content biases operate and shed light on the cultural success of these legends. This study demonstrates that content biases are an effective force in cultural transmission but that different biases may not necessarily operate in exactly the same manner.
