ANNOUNCING: H-Folk: H-Net Network on Folklore
Member of: H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences Online <>

H-Net proudly announces its newest addition to its
family of over 180 discussion networks -- H-Folk -- in
cooperation with The American Folklore Society, The
Folklore Society of Great Britain, The Folklore Studies
Association of Canada, the International Society for
Folk Narrative Research, the National Folklore Support
Centre [India], and the Socit internationale
dethnologie et de folklore.

H-Folk has been created to foster better international
communication among folklorists and to increase
scholarly dialogue in the field. H-Folk encourages
discussions of research, teaching, policy, and
historiography in the fields of folklore and ethnology.
In addition, H-Folk welcomes news of major conferences,
calls for papers, announcements of fellowship and
research opportunities, and links to organization
websites. H-Folk also supports the exchange of ideas
and information with scholars on related H-Net
networks.  Finally, H-Folk disseminates information
about its six sponsoring organizations.  It is a
network developed in conjunction with all these
organizations, although it is open for all to join.

The H-Folk resources list
( contains
information about these organizations.  Suggestions for
additional resources are welcome; please email the

The goals of H-Net lists are to enable scholars to
easily communicate current research and teaching
interests; to discuss new approaches, methods and tools
of analysis; to share information on online resources;
to test new ideas and share comments on the literature
in their fields; to publish quality reviews in many
fields; and to support academe through publication of
the JobGuide.  All network messages are permanently
archived and searchable.

Like all H-Net lists, H-Folk is moderated to edit out
material that, in the editors' opinion, is not germane
to the list, involves technical matters (such as
subscription management requests), is inflammatory, or
violates the evolving, yet common, standards of
Internet etiquette.  H-Net's procedure for resolving
disputes over list editorial practices is Article II,
Section 2.20 of our bylaws, located at:  Logs and more
