In this Issue
Founded in 1888, the American Folklore Society exists to further the discipline of folklore studies, to improve the professional well-being of its members, and to increase the respect given to diverse cultures and their traditions. Society members publish scholarly articles, in-depth manuscripts and engaging exhibition catalogues. They produce award-winning documentary films and recordings, as well as nationally recognized radio programs. The educational and theoretical questions raised by its members positions the Society at the leading edge of contemporary cultural issues and establishes folklore as a primary field of humanistic inquiry.
