The Folklore and History section of the American Folklore Society, publisher of the journal The Folklore Historian, invites submissions for its biennial Wayland D. Hand Prize for an outstanding book that combines historical and folkloristic perspectives. A work offered for consideration can be an authored book, edited volume or reference work, or exhibition catalog published between June 2013 and June 2014.

The prize honors the eminent folklorist Wayland D. Hand (1907–1986), who in his teaching and scholarship encouraged historical methodology in folklore research. He was recognized for his effort by being awarded the international Giuseppe Pitre Folklore Prize and the Chicago Folklore Prize. The winner of the Wayland D. Hand Prize will receive $200 and an accolade from the American Folklore Society. The prize-winning book will be publicized at the annual meeting of the American Folklore Society and in the pages of The Folklore Historian. For a list of previous winners, see

Submissions can be from authors or publishers. Submit three copies of the submission for judges BEFORE June 15, 2014, to Professor Simon J. Bronner, American Studies Program, Penn State Harrisburg, 777 West Harrisburg Pike, Middletown, PA 17057 USA.
