AFS Review: Folklorists in the News

Maribel Alvarez Discusses How Folklore Serves as a Lens in Studying Global Issues

Friday, May 29, 2020   (0 Comments)

Maribel Alvarez describes folklore as a discipline that understands the ways of knowing that is grasped by oral tradition and
observation, serving as an alternative entry point in addressing global issues such as climate change. Alvarez also introduces
a new project, ClimateLore, a planned yearlong series of stories focusing on the impacts of climate on cultural traditions,
language and work.
