Genealogy invites scholars from across social sciences and humanities to submit essays to the special issue, "Articulating Continuity, Documenting Change: Life-Storytelling in Oral History and Folklore," focusing on the ways life stories engage with social and familial change. The editors invite contributions that explore life-storytelling as a cultural practice that both documents social change and strives to articulate familial continuity. Submissions on the following topics are welcome but not limited to:
  • Life story narratives of change from the comparative perspective;
  • Autobiographical narrative across family generations;
  • Diaspora/homeland life narratives of familial continuity and change;
  • Post-coloniality and personal life narrative;
  • Post-totalitarianism and life-storytelling;
  • Migration and life-storytelling;
  • Ethnic minorities and life-stories;
  • Personal life-narratives and indigenous contexts;
  • Political uses of life-storytelling
The Journal will waive any publishing fees for those essays that are chosen.

Deadline for submission is October 31, 2020. 

For more information, contact guest editors Natalia Khanenko-Friesen at and Nadya Foty-Oneschuk at
