Thread Name: Contemporary song in folk music
Subject: RE: Contemporary song in folk music
RE:
4) Are modern 'composed' songs (as opposed to anonymous 'traditional' songs) a part of the folk repertoire and should they be?

In your dissertation what will you mean by "anonymous traditional songs" and "folk repertoire"?

Your definitions will make the answer to the first question clear.

Your second question is prescriptive. Is such a question appropriate for the dissertation? Will you adviser(s) let you get away with it?
