Focus and Scope

Journal of Folklore and Popular Culture. Literatura Ludowa is the quarterly double-blind peer reviewed Open Access academic journal published by The Polish Ethnological Society.

Intended to be both international in its scope and interdisciplinary in approach, the Journal provides a forum for wide-ranging, in-depth discussion on historical and contemporary forms of folklore as well as popular and vernacular culture. Our aim is to publish original papers in folklore research, cultural anthropology, culture studies and related fields concerning language, literature, religion, history, performance, communication and new media.

Journal of Folklore and Popular Culture. Literatura Ludowa welcomes contributions featuring theoretical analyses and case studies as well as articles addressing the ethnographical findings and fieldwork experience or reviews of new publications in the field.

Manuscripts can be submitted both to the thematic issues (see Call for papers) and to the general section included in each issue.
