To ensure the continuity of and traditions within the discipline of folklore, we must know what came before. Folklore in the United States and Canada is an essential guide to the history and development of academic folklore programs throughout the United States and Canada. As the first history of folklore studies since the mid-1980s, this book offers a long overdue look into the innovations of the newer programs, as well as the development of the earliest programs. The volume is encyclopedic in its coverage and is organized in a rough chronology based on the approximate founding date of each program. An excellent panel of contributors explores the key individuals and central events at various North American folklore initiatives within broader cultural and historical contexts, demonstrating how these programs have been shaped over time. Revealing the connections between programs, such as their origins, successes, and challenges, Folklore in the United States and Canada is an essential read for all folklorists and those who are studying to become folklorists.
