The journal’s stated aim is to draw together all academics who share an interest in festivities, including but not limited to holiday celebrations, family rituals, carnivals, religious feasts, processions and parades, and civic commemorations.
Happy to announce the new peer reviewed open access Journal of Festive Studies. This journal draws together academics of all disciplines who share an interest in festivals, including holiday celebrations, family rituals, carnivals, religious feasts, processions and parades, civic commemorations, etc.
H-Net is starting a new network on the study of holidays, festivals and festivity, and celebrations. The broad scope will encompass festivals representing a range of emotional stripes, from holiday celebrations to festivals of memorialization, protest marches, local and regional commemorations, historic reenactments, and on and on. The network will be multi-disciplinary and international in scope and will make full use of H-Net’s platform and position as an online, open access publisher.
