Digne Ūdre

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Tartu, Department of Estonian and Comparative Folklore. The topic of my dissertation is folk ornament in Latvia in the context of tradition, its mythological interpretation, and layers of historical meanings and contestations connected to it. Besides PhD studies, I am a researcher at the Institute of Literature, Folklore and Art, University of Latvia. I have been involved in various research projects, but the current ones focus on the disciplinary history of folklore studies, the folklore movement and the Singing Revolution in Latvia, narratives of place and identity.
