Down the Rabbit Hole–the how and why of researching stories

Always wanted to know what it feels like to be Indiana Jones? This is your chance to take a dive into remote, obscure corners of the past, following a half-forgotten trail of folktales and legends. Researching traditional stories can be difficult, but it also leads to exciting, unexpected, and illuminating discoveries. This session, led by an archaeologist and storyteller, offers insight into how to track down some of the most elusive tales.

Become familiar with the basics of storytelling research as well as some lesser known techniques for tracking down a tale. Discover classic folklore research tools (e.g. the ATU motif index) and how they work together with modern media. Track stories down beyond Google search. Take research across language barriers, and learn tips on how to organize and maintain one’s notes and findings.
