Sarah Reith speaks with Margaret Mills, doctor of folklore, analyst of oral cultural treasures—and one of the finest storytellers you will hear on the radio today. She has learned about storytelling from some of the finest teachers there are, and every question produces an answer that is a story within a story, plus an account of how that tale arrived in Margaret Mills’ repertoire.

In our discussion of “Destroying Patriarchy to Save it;” we will enjoy a rendition of the folktale that makes Dr. Mills’ point.  We will hear about how harmless tales can serve many purposes, as outlined in her award-winning book, Rhetorics and Politics in Afghan Traditional Storytelling.

In "Victimhood as Agency: Afghan Women's Memoirs," we will examine how Afghan women’s self-representations change with political and social conditions. And we will talk about women tricksters, in "Between Covered and Covert: Traditions, Stereotypes, and Afghan Women's Agency.”

 Follow this link to the program archive for an extended discussion of how the strategies of activism resemble those of quick-witted heroines in tales told around a fire.

 If you would prefer to enjoy the hour-long broadcast version, please follow this link instead.
