FLKU.04.122 Swedish Cultural Analysis: A Method for Interpreting Our Own Culture (3 ECTS)

Camilla Benita Asplund Ingemark; November 2014;

This course introduces the method of cultural analysis developed by Swedish ethnologists Billy Ehn and Orvar Löfgren from the early 1980s onward, and extended by their students and colleagues. Since the method addresses the problems involved in interpreting our own culture - the culture we ourselves live and breathe, not the culture of "others" - and provides tools for partially overcoming them, it is very useful for understanding the folklore and folklife of contemporary society. The course will focus on the interpretation of the three components of culture identified by Ehn & Löfgren: 1) cultural codes, concepts and values; 2) cultural behaviour and action; and 3) the cultural representation and expression of emotions and sensory experiences. Each lecture will contain practical analyses of case studies, using the method.

 

FLKU.04.106 Witches, Healers, Magicians. Vernacular Magic and Healing in Early Modern Europe (3 ECTS)

 Judit Szuzsanna Kis-Halas;  October 2014; Ülikooli 16-212

The course highlights on a particular section of Early Modern mentalities: the interconnections between witchcraft and healing. The thorough examination of various historical sources, such as witch trial records, sermons, medical and demonological literature provides insight into the working mechanisms of the early modern market of magical services: the activity of soothsayers, diviners, healers, treasure hunters, witch-doctors, and their clienteele.

During the course a rich source material is explored, stamming mostly from Central Europe, however each case-study is embedded a larger, Europen histrorical and social context. It enables us to trace the role of the sacred/magic dimensions of healing; to survay the scope of different supernatural explanations of illness and fate; to place magical specialits within the frame of the vernacular religion of early modern times, as well as specify their function in the communal network of witchcraft.

 

FLKU.04.119 Ethnosemiotics (3 ECTS )

Jonathan Edward Hodgess Roper; November 2014, Ülikooli 16-209

Since the early seventies, researchers in eastern Europe have, under the heading of 'ethnosemiotics', been applying semiotic approaches to traditional culture. Some of the more prominent names in this trend have been those of Vilmos Voigt, Mihail Hoppal, Imre Grafik, and Solomon Marcus. This course investigates their work and explores the potential of ethnosemiotics to enhance our understanding of traditional culture.

FLKU.04.104 International Folkloristics (3 ECTS), I part (3 EAP)

Jonathan Edward Hodgess Roper, Ülo Valk, Ergo-Hart Västrik

The course offers an introduction to some topical issues in contemporary international folkloristics to the students of all disciplines who are interested in vernacular culture, creativity and worldview, and the role of folklore in society. The course does not require previous knowledge of folklore studies. The lectures and seminars do not aim to give an overall picture of any particular folk culture but offer a set of international examples and case studies to be discussed within various theoretical and conceptual frameworks. We shall start with a brief discussion of folklore as a concept and the role of folkloristics in knowledge production (as a revision for the students who took "International folkloristics I" in autumn semester 2014 and as an introduction for those who join the class in spring semester). Next we shall discuss the following topics: 1) folklore, creativity and authorship; 2) the poetics of folklore (genres); 3) folklore and the related expressive forms (e.g. literature and film); 4) folklore, resistance and power; 5) folklore as alternative knowledge; 6) concept of the vernacular; 7) belief, religion and worldview.
