Folklore Studies in a Multicultural World
Folklore Studies in a Multicultural World publishes the first books of scholars working in folklore studies. The series emphasizes the interdisciplinary and international nature of current folklore scholarship. Series volumes highlight aspects of folklore studies such as world folk cultures, folk art and music, foodways, dance, African American and ethnic studies, gender and queer studies, and popular culture.
Funded by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the series is a collaborative venture of the University of Illinois Press, the University Press of Mississippi, and the University of Wisconsin Press, in conjunction with the American Folklore Society.
An annual day-long workshop, part of the American Folklore Society annual meeting, offers first-time authors a chance to work closely with editors and mentoring folklore experts in developing their book projects for the series. Proposals for the workshop are accepted each year between January 1 and April 1. Full details available on the FSMW website: www.folklorestudies.org.
