Week 3: (Nov. 13 to 17) – Kim @ Sophisticated Dorkiness: Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert: Three ways to join in this week! You can either share 3 or more books on a single topic that you have read and can recommend (be the expert), you can put the call out for good nonfiction on a specific topic that you have been dying to read (ask the expert), or you can create your own list of books on a topic that you’d like to read (become the expert).
I had been mulling over a what topic I might want for becoming an expert and I hadn’t come up with anything really juicy…until a happy coincidence this morning. The folks at Just a Story podcast linked to this thread on Twitter:
Here are my top three picks from the thread to get started on the subject of Folklore in the Digital Age:
- Folklore and the Internet: Vernacular Expression in a Digital World by Trevor J. Blank (Editor)
- Putting the Supernatural in Its Place: Folklore, the Hypermodern, and the Ethereal by Jeannie Banks Thomas
- The Folkloresque: Reframing Folklore in a Popular Culture World by Michael Dylan Foster (Editor), Jeffrey A. Tolbert (Editor)
Anyone have any recommendations? (Great books about folklore in general would be welcome too!)
