Call for Chapters - Folklore, People and Place

This book is an exploration of the role of folklore, culture and belief in mediating human relationships with the natural environment. Folklore has been widely recognised amongst scholars as a resource to promote and reimagine places (Light 2007; Mathe-Soulek, Aguirre, and Dallinger 2016), providing an opportunity to engage visitors with heritage, culture and the environment (Hopper et al. 2019; Paphitis 2013). The popularity of folklore in tourism is seen across the globe as destinations and heritage sites draw upon their stories as a form of intangible cultural heritage. Others have also recognised the value of myth, folklore and storytelling, as a resource to promote ecological learning and engagement with the natural world (Hopper et al., 2019; Hallam, 2019).
