The Call for Papers in a panel on folklore revivals in non-democratic contexts (SIEF2023 Congress “Living Uncertainty”)

Institute of Literature, Folklore and Art of the University of Latvia (ILFA) is looking forward to the SIEF2023 Congress “Living Uncertainty” which will take place in Brno in June next year!

Together with colleagues from the University of Tartu and the Institute of Lithuanian Literature and Folklore, we are organizing a panel on folklore revivals in non-democratic contexts. We welcome scholars to submit paper proposals on the uncertainties and strategies of people practicing folklore under strong governmental control of public expression during the second half of the 20th century.

The Call for Papers is open until 10 January 2023!

Please share this information with scholars who do research in this field and would be interested in presenting and networking.

The panel is organized within the research project “Folklore Revival in Latvia: Resources, Ideologies and Practices” implemented in 2022–2024 and funded by the Latvian Council of Science (Project No: lzp-2021/1-0243).
