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 can highlight such aspects of folklore studies as world folk cultures, folk art and music, foodways, dance, 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 series and workshop are accepted each year between January 1 and April 1. Full details available on the FSMW website: http://www.press.uillinois.edu/fls/.

Somali Bantu Teenage Refugees in America
“Throughout the United States, both large and small cities host resettled refugees, with all the attendant challenges pertaining to education, employment, and social interaction. Sandra Grady’s outstanding book should interest a readership well beyond scholars of ethnography.”

Diaspora, Homeland, and Folk Imagination in the Twentieth Century
“The author takes her readers on a profound journey through time and across geographic borders. In clear, engaging language, she finds a balance between culturally rich ethnographic examples and complex theoretical interpretations, introducing a folkloric perspective that is largely underrepresented in diaspora studies.”
