Folkłore, Culture, and Authenticity: a lecture by Prof. Sabina Magliocco {video}

I hope it is not overstepping bounds, or violating copyright, to share this excellent resource. With the recent discussions of  ‘fictionalized paganism’ on my mind, I am revisiting my own ideas of what constitutes sacred story; and foundations, or definitions, are a good place to start. I stumbled upon this video last year, and found it useful. I hope there is something in it for you, too.
