Cultural Analysis: An Interdisciplinary Forum on Folklore and Popular Culture

About Cultural Analysis

Announcement - Association with SIEF

Societé Internationale d'Ethnologie et de Folklore

From its inception, Cultural Analysis has embraced new models for scholarly publication. The editors intend the journal's dual publication format to help fulfill its mission to make high-level folklore scholarship as widely available as possible to the international scholarly community.

Unlike traditional journals, CA does not maintain a subscription base, and instead is freely available to anyone with an internet connection. And hearkening back to the days of manuscript scholarship with a postmodern twist, Cultural Analysis provides free hardcopies of each volume to major research libraries and archives, ensuring that its availability to international scholars is not dependent on internet access.

Using this innovative model to encourage the participation of scholars from across the globe, Cultural Analysis has become a highly-rated peer-reviewed journal with a reputation for promoting international and interdisciplinary collaboration.

Given our mission and history, the editors of Cultural Analysis are pleased to announce that, effective immediately, we will begin working in collaboration with the Societé Internationale d'Ethnologie et de Folklore, an organization whose focus on international and interdisciplinary cooperation we see as natural fit with the ideals of our publication.

While Folklore has always been an international discipline, the rise of globalization has dramatically increased the need for an international scholarship that is capable of tracking transnational cultural flows. In the future of the global village, the study of vernacular expressive culture will continue to be among the most critical areas for research and publication. In association with SIEF, Cultural Analysis is pleased to contribute towards the study of this valuable area.

The editors of Cultural Analysis welcome this opportunity to enhance our scholarly mission and contribute to the valuable work of SIEF.
