Implied Nowhere

Willow G. Mullins

University Press of Mississippi

Beginning with some of our keywords—authenticity, vernacular, and genre—and one folklorist’s crisis of belief, this opening chapter questions the folklorists’ investment in the tenets of folklore studies by looking behind the curtain of academic discourse to consider our belief in the language we use. Her argument rests on the seemingly simple claim that every mode of thought contains an element of faith. Here, Mullins seeks to peek behind the veil of our articles of faith.
