Summary
McGee collects the door decorations in her college dormitory as examples of expressive material folklore. She believes that the decorations thrive in environments of disjunction and conjunction, both of which happen when a student leaves home and joins a new dorm folk group. She suggests that door decorations are educational, maintain worldview, act as a method of social control, and act as an expressive and creative release
