Department Section Description: 

Examines the research questions and theoretical models used by folklorists and other scholars in the study of vernacular religion and popular spirituality. We will examine religion and spirituality as it is “lived,” focusing primarily on beliefs and practices that are informally learned and generally unsanctioned by institutional doctrines and authorities. The role of folklore in people’s religious lives will be explored through the analysis of narratives, rituals, beliefs, customs, celebrations, sacred journeys, and numinous experiences.
