Abstract

"Du côté de chez Scheub" is a remembrance of the classes taught by Harold Scheub in the early 1970s, at a time when student revolutions on the streets of Madison, Wisconsin, were matched by radically new approaches to the study of oral traditions espoused by Scheub. It is a homage to the brilliant scholar who revealed what wonders lay buried under the misnomer "folktales" and then crafted a set of critical tools appropriate to the analysis or oral narrative performance. Finally, it is an acknowledgment of the enduring relevance of Scheub's methodologies across a range of artistic expression in the Black Atlantic ecumene.
