Diagnosing Folklore: Perspectives on Disability, Health, and Trauma

Trevor J. Blank and Andrea Kitta


Diagnosing Folklore aspires to provide an inclusive forum for an expansive conversation on the sensitive, raw, and powerful processes that shape and imbue meaning in the lives of individuals and communities beleaguered by stigmatization, conflicting public perceptions, and contextual constraints. This volume aims to showcase current ideas and debates, as well as promote the larger study of disability, health, and trauma within folkloristics, and helping bridge the gaps between the folklore discipline and disability studies.

Keywords: Folklore, Health, Trauma, Disability, Medicine
