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 3 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/its purpose in our society. You should use at least two sources which can come from readings we’ve done for class or sources you find on your own. Remember, sources can be films, podcasts, Ted Talks, etc. as well as scholarly articles. Plus, you should use your own opinions and experiences with folklore to back up your argument. This is an open-ended prompt for a reason. Feel free to get creative and take it in a direction that interests you!
