Narrating, Doing, Experiencing. Nordic Folkloristic Perspectives. Edited by Annikki Kaivola-Bregenhøj, Barbro Klein & Ulf Palmenfelt
Finnish Literature Society
Studia Fennica. Folkloristica 16
Helsinki 2006, 185 pp.


Eight Nordic folklorists here examine personal experience stories and the way they are narrated in an attempt to gain an understanding of the people behind them and to reveal how these people handle their history, their lives and their cultural memory. All the articles are based on interviews and narrator-researcher collaboration. The stories tell about birth, sickness and miraculous cures, intergenerational relations, war, and matters not normally talked about.
