Discipline: Orality

(Practices and forms, contact between cultures and circulation of texts)

In many societies around the world, orality and oral literature, one of its privileged means of expression, are part of very rich socio-cultural practices, whether ceremonial, ritual or familial, etc. Orality is not just a legacy from the past that establishes a link with our present through transmission; it is contemporary and living, and can be studied as a verbal art within the framework of "safeguarding intangible cultural heritage" defined by UNESCO in October 2003.
Orality is the subject of a theory and method of analysis dedicated to it, incorporating a multidisciplinary approach.
