H-Folk supports international conversation on research, teaching, policy, and historiography in the fields of folklore and ethnology.
Guest Editor: Charles Reagan Wilson
Folklorica, the peer-reviewed journal of the Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Folklore Society (an affiliate of Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies), is seeking submissions for a thematic issue on the “Teaching of Folklore and Teaching with Folklore.” Folklore courses are some of the biggest draws to language (and other) departments. Yet many departments have no folklorists. This issue will address the challenges and successes of folklore classes and provide guidance for non-folklorists teaching these classes.
