folklore, mythology, cultural studies and related disciplines
Here is an initial selection of articles relating to some aspects of the scope of foamy custard. The plan is for each article to link to a relevant online discussion 'forum', although this has not been implemented at this stage.
More importantly this list of articles needs to grow into a much more substantial cross-section of the disciplines foamy custard aims to bring together. See the comments and suggestions page for advice on contributions.
Some 'setting the stage' articles:
foamy custard's ingredients The strengths and weaknesses of folklore, mythology, cultural studies and sociology of culture
An overview of folklore, mythology and cultural studies (Paper prepared for a research seminar at NATCECT May 2004)
More 'applied' articles:
NEW! symbols of control
NEW! recapitulation and application
pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been? witches' familiars as metaphors and metonyms.
beyond Indiana Jones versus the Mother Goddess feminism in archaeology, folklore and mythology
spaces of transition new light on the haunted house
