Journal of Folklore and Education

Educators and folk culture specialists will want to check out the Journal of Folklore and Education (JFE), an open-access, peer-reviewed annual journal published by Local Learning: The National Network for Folk Arts in Education. Using ethnographic methods and frameworks, the journal "taps the knowledge and life experience of students, their families, community members, and educators," providing a forum for "community-based teaching, learning, and cultural stewardship." Each volume of JFE explores how teachers, students, and folk artists tackle complex issues through the lens of cultural analysis. For instance, the 2021 volume features articles such as "The Urban Art Mapping Project: A Discussion of Street Art Preservation and Antiracism," which explores the global reach of ephemeral urban street art; and "Written in Beads: Storytelling as Transmission of Haudenosaunee Culture," which relates the experiences of a beadwork artist and her connection to tradition. From the page linked above, interested readers can use the Browse drop-down menu to navigate all volumes of the journal, each of which can be downloaded in its entirety as a PDF.
