Dorothy Noyes: Folklore, Exemplarity and Politics

Dr. Dorothy Noyes

Professor Dorothy Noyes studies folklore from its different views in American and European contexts to its role in representing marginalized cultures and the interplay between high and low culture. Profs. Noyes and Staley discuss the idea of exemplarity and the significance of interdisciplinary collaboration in academia, drawing from her experience at the Mershon Center for International Security Studies and sharing insights from her book projects on exemplarity in liberal politics.
