Welcome to our 2nd installment of Digital Folklore Unplugged.
These unplugged episodes are all about stripping away the fancy production elements so that we can give you access to raw (or slightly edited) interviews with folklore experts.
Today’s guest is Dr. Diane Rodgers. Diane is a senior lecturer in Media at Sheffield Hallam University where she specializes in Alternative Media and Storytelling in film and television. Her research interests relate to the communication of folklore and contemporary legend in the media including: folk horror; folklore on screen; the supernatural, ‘spooky’ television programming aimed at children, and other darkly fascinating topics.
Diane’s PhD research was on folk horror and hauntology in 'wyrd' 1970s British Film and Television. She’s also co-founder of the Centre for Contemporary Legend research group.
And if you are one of our wonderful Patreon supporters, you get access to these interviews a few days early before their general release.
Also mentioned in this episode was the International Society for Contemporary Legend Research (ISCLR).
Ok, let’s get unplugged…
