New Directions in Folklore welcomes submissions for its inaugural issue as a revitalized, open access e-Journal with Vol. 8, no. 1/2 (2010). This is our first new issue in over seven years, and we are excited to hear from the folklore community as a whole. Thus, we invite articles under 10,000 words on any topic of thematic interest to the journal (such as participatory culture, new media, the digital humanities, the state of modern folkloristics, unexplored topical areas, etc.).Prospective authors are encouraged to review the "For Authors" information on the left information link. Please direct any questions to Trevor J. Blank, editor. We look forward to working with you!
