The conference will gather folklorists, ethnologists and other cultural researchers to a discussion about folkloristics' current contributions to today’s development of knowledge in the cultural sciences. "Why Folkloristics! has two questions as its starting point: "To what do we need folkloristics?” and "What kinds of knowledge do folklorists claim to produce?”

The organizers welcome contributions to highlight these questions in the form of papers and sessions. The organizers welcome papers both with focus on cultural theoretical work and on empirical studies. Thematically the papers can take inspiration from the entire folkloristic field of research.
