My name is Dennis Isbell and I am the subject specialist for the arts and performance at the West campus. Contact me if you need help with research in your classes.

I am generally in Mondays through Fridays from 8 to 5. My office is on the third floor, northwest corner, room 317.

Introduction to Folklore Research

Warning! Doing truly in-depth research in folklore is still text-based using print resources. In addition, some of the standard tools for finding folk stories, myths, etc. are very specialized and require time and study. If you are engaged in serious research in the field, be prepared to delve into older publications and retrospective indexes.  If you need help, contact me.

This guide also applies to the study of mythology, fables, legends, and fairy tales.
