Cate-Pizarro Updated Proposal

My update for my project proposal is minimal, and I know I have a lot of footwork to do. I need to meet with people in Williamsburg to get a sense of exactly where my project is going. I’ve been looking more into folklore and how it operates in society. I was really grateful that our guest Laurie Brown mentioned her ghost story today. After class I asked her if she would talk with me more about the dynamic between scholarship and superstition, especially in reference to Colonial Williamsburg. Next week will be a big week for me (I hope), because I hope to meet with a local paranormal activity enthusiast in the area. Right now I don’t really have too much more to add, hopefully there is more to come after next week.
