Keeping Myths, Legends and Folk Tales Alive

An online talk by Rosalind Kerven
Tuesday 23 April 2024, 7-8 p.m. online

Folktales, fairy tales, myths and legends are vital aspects of folklore studies. Are they simply historical curiosities, or living, organic entities which are still being developed today? What is the difference between folktales, fairy tales, myths and legends? How can researchers / storytellers identify the most ‘authentic’ versions of such stories? How can storytellers adapt ‘original’ versions for modern audiences? What are the ethical aspects of retelling traditional tales?

Rosalind Kerven has written 70 books on world myths, legends and folktales and will address these questions in this online talk.
This event is free and open to all. E-mail h.robbins@chi.ac.uk for the Teams link.
