On behalf of the Western States Folklore Society (WSFS), the students and faculty of Willamette University invite submissions to their annual meeting: “Folklore in the Trans-Pacific Communication.” This conference will offer a space to explore the theme and to exchange ideas on other topics within the field.

The Western States of the United States are essential in the Trans-Pacific communication in our increasingly globalized world, especially regarding the reconstruction of identity of the diverse cultural groups with their distinct folklores. How folklore plays its role in the trans-Pacific communication is certainly an important question for folklorists in the Western States Folklore Society. Our challenge is to study how folklore in the trans-Pacific communication has strengthened such communication in a new age. In accordance with this theme, WSFS encourages presentations that explore immigration, cyber-community, group identity, family folklore, diaspora experience, multi-lingual education through folklore, among many other topics.
