About the course

We are all innately creative, whether through the stories we recount, the jokes we tell, the songs we sing, the traditions we keep, the online 'memes' we create and share, our customs and beliefs, the ways we remember those who have passed away, the festivals we celebrate, or the clothes we wear.

These creative everyday expressions are the core of what we study at the Elphinstone Institute. Students will explore this vibrant vernacular culture within the context of wider society, when and where it comes from, what it means to people today, and the different ways scholars have studied this material since the beginnings of the disciplines.
