AFS Review: News

Recent Books Added to AFS Folklore Wiki

Friday, March 9, 2012   (6 Comments)
Posted by: Lorraine Cashman
A list of books published in the last five years in folklore and allied fields can now be found on the editable Recent Books page in the Folklore Wiki, a part of the Folklore Commons on the AFS website. The list is not complete, but it represents a notable start toward a comprehensive bibliography of recent work in the field.

To keep this list complete, current and correct, we depend on you. We strongly encourage you to add your own past or forthcoming titles or favorites. For help editing the page, see "Custom Pages" in FAQ.

Many thanks to
Gregory Hansen, Journal of American Folklore Book Review Editor, and Bekalu Kifle of Arkansas State University for their work preparing this initial draft.
