SRAS Family of Sites

FolkWays Eurasia

More Exploration of Identity in Eurasia!

Folkways gives a broad view of the deep roots of modern identities. There are many more forces affecting individuals and cultures today, however. That’s why Folkways is part of the SRAS Family of Sites, our partner sites that cover other subjects in greater depth. SRAS also offers regular mailings so you can keep up with what’s new on our sites.

PopKult explores the popular culture that entertains us and also reflects who we are as a society. PopKult examines the music, film, television, animation, and even the commercialization of traditional foods that define communities. Particular attention is given to how traditional culture is informing and helping to create unique narratives and styles within local mass-produced media.

Understand the critical role these institutions play in shaping societies, reflecting the values and histories of the communities they serve. Engage with profiles of prominent artists and writers who have left their mark on Eurasia’s diverse cultures.
