The Missouri Folklore Society Journal is returning to publication after a hiatus of several years, and has an opening in its annual publication schedule. We are interested in producing a collection of essays on "Public Folklore and Folklorists: Projects and Prospects” (working title). Whether the project is viable will depend on the volume of response. Subject matter is open (and need not relate to Missouri), as is approach: theory, practice, projects, administration, history. We are open to collaborative projects as well as "roundtables” – approaches to particular questions or subjects from multiple perspectives.
Please share this notice as seems appropriate. We welcome informal proposals at once, and would like to be reading essays during the fall semester. Please contact Adam Brooke Davis (Truman State University) at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject "Public Folklore.”
We look forward to hearing from you.
