Thursday, December 12, 2019   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Alexandra Sanchez

If you are working on the post-war disciplinary history of folkloristics or related discipline in the former Soviet Union or the Socialist Bloc countries, consider contributing a research article to an international, peer reviewed, and SCOPUS or Web of Science indexed collection of articles that will be published in 2021.

 The special interest lies in, but is not limited to such issues as:

  •  The impact of the socialist heritage on the development of folkloristics in the post-socialist countries;
  • The role of the socialist regimes of knowledge in organization of folklore archives, ethnographic collections and other institutional representations of folk life;
  • The contribution of folkloristics and related disciplines to resistance and dissent in the former USSR and the Soviet bloc countries;
  • The parameters of transnational post-socialist disciplinary history of folklore;
  • History of folkloristics and ethnography in the light of Soviet post-colonialism;
  • The interaction of folklorists and ethnographers through the Iron Curtain;
  • Influential theories and source publications in the socialist folkloristic.

If interested in featuring an article in Socialist Folkloristics: A Disciplinary Heritage, send the following material to by January 31, 2020:

  • Name, surname and short bio;
  • Title of your article and keywords;
  • Concept or summary of the article (up to 350 words).

A notice of your acceptance, along with further details, will be sent out by February 17, 2020. Deadline for the final article (7000–10,000 words) in English will be June 20, 2020. In fall 2020, peer-review and editing will begin.
