Description:Folklore is the study of the oral and written traditions, beliefs, myths, tales and practices of a people. While folklorists study traditions passed down through generations, they also consider expressive elements found in popular culture and media. Many look at modern phenomena, from urban legends to jokes, from hockey culture to skateboarding, from Ouija boards to tourism.

As the only Anglophone university in Canada to offer comprehensive folklore programs at all levels, Memorial provides folklorists with rich opportunities for innovative community partnerships and learning experiences.
