The academic study of folklore is called folklore studies or folkloristics, and it can be explored at undergraduate, graduate and P. Contents.

He fabricated it to replace the contemporary terminology of "popular antiquities" or "popular literature".

Folklore studies has roots in the Enlightenment, Romanticism, and philological studies in Europe

Folklore studies has roots in the Enlightenment, Romanticism, and philological studies in Europe. The word itself was coined in 1846 by British scholar William Thoms. One key difference between folklore in the academic sense of the word and its colloquial use is that we define folklore as a specific part of culture, expressive culture, which is traditional and informally transmitted. Folklore in our sense of the word doesn’t have any necessary relationship to truth value; we wouldn’t say that’s just folklore or that’s just a myth. Some folklore genres like folktale are understood to be fictional by their tellers and communities, where others like legend are told as though true.

The folk literature of the African Americans is in a state of continual change, reflecting their history. Much certainly goes back to Africa, usually by way of the West Indies, and much was borrowed long ago. But African Americans have themselves in a truly oral fashion developed songs and stories, and particular music styles. Of very special character is the folklore of modern Israel. Jews from various lands have brought together folk literature from all these countries

This study of the geerarsa folksong of Ethiopia's Oromo people is organized into seven chapters that follow major historical periods of Oromo society in Ethiopia and the successive Ethiopian government policies that affect them. Topics include Oromo folklore as a historical source; an Oromo ethnographic background; distribution of geerarsa in the Horn of Africa and examples from printed and oral recorded sources; how geerarsa performance illustrates the Oromo heroic worldview; the colonial period of confrontation between the Oromo and Amhara/Tigrean/Ethiopians; staged geerarsa in Oromia, Ethiopia, and the diaspora; and how geerarsa serves as a repository of history and a medium of self-expression and national identity.
