by Sara Brinck Jørgensen --

On the Occasion of the 50th year since the publication of the first issue of Ethnologia Europaea in 1967, this issue is dedicated to reflection on the past half-century. It presents five articles, one from each decade of the journal's publication, on the one hand showcasing classic articles and on the other highlighting the shifts and re-orientations the journal has undergone along the way. These changes are addressed in the comments on each article by a wide range of scholars as well as in the overarching reflections on 50 years of Ethnologia Europaea by two of its former editors, Regina F. Bendix and Orvar Löfgren.


About the journal

Ethnologia Europaea is a lively and interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal with a focus on European cultures and societies. It carries material of great interest not only to European ethnologists, social/cultural anthropologists and scholars of Folklore Studies but also to human geographers, sociologists, social and cultural historians and cultural studies scholars.

An impression of the areas covered by the journal is reflected in some of the thematic topics of the issues recently published: Silence in Cultural Practices (2016), Muslim Intimacies (2016), Rage, Anger and other Don’ts (2015), Foodways Redux (2013), Imagined Families in Mobile Worlds (2012), Irregular Ethnographies (2011), Performing Nordic Spaces (2010).

The journal was started in 1967 and is published biannually. Since its beginning it has acquired a central position in the international and interdisciplinary cooperation between scholars inside and outside Europe. Ethnologia Europaea is an A-ranked journal according to the European Science Foundation journal evaluation (European Reference Index for the Humanities initial list). Since 2015 it is the official print journal of the International Society for Ethnology and Folklore (SIEF). SIEF members receive printed copies of every issue and electronic access to backlist issues older than one year (plus current year). Issues older than three years (plus current year) are Open Access.

Ethnologia Europaea is edited by associate professor Marie Sandberg (University of Copenhagen, Ethnology Section) and professor Monqiue Scheer (Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen).
