Call for Papers: Deadline for abstracts April 30th 2019
The Louisisna Folklore Society is an association of scholars focusing on the folklore of Louisiana. The Society supports the peer-reviewed journal Louisiana Folklore Miscellany. Our organization is looking for individuals who actively partiicipate in scholarship focusing on folklore and the south as we expand the topic of our special issue to include the Gulf South.
The Gulf South, broadly defined, is a region stretching from the Florida panhandle through the coast of Texas. It is a region that exists in contradictions, both culturally and physically. Though there are remnants and traces of both Dixie and the Carribbean in the region, the Gulf South is an area marked by its own distinctive traits and, we believe, its own folklore.
This speical issue invites essays about the folklore and/or folklore of the Gulf South. The essayd do not have to focus exclusively, or even at all, on Louisiana, though we certainly encourage essays that explore Louisiana's existence within this larger regional network.
