Facets, the collaboration of a folklore scholar interested in the digital humanities and a digital media scholar interested in folklore, is a hypermedia project meant to begin to explore the potential in creatively combining folkloric materials with digital resources. We believe that, in moving beyond static text on the page, digital work can provide a means of exploring the multiple meanings and messages that oral folklore performance intrinsically makes available to listeners and provide a space to discover new meaning as well.
