About the event
Folklore often encompasses rich bodies of knowledge and wisdom handed down within communities. Yet, it is all too easy to relate to folk tradition through the lenses of our modern society as being mere stories, practices divorced from their originating landscapes, or as mere regional manifestations of universal archetypes.
In this presentation, we will explore folklore theory deeper and expand on understanding on it's mechanics, the importance of regional differences, and it's function. We will explore, with case examples, of how a magical practitioner might relate to their own landscape and the various denizens existing there.
