A Companion to Folklore offers a broad overview of the field that has evolved over the last few decades into an exploration of the human propensity to view folklore studies around the world as they are shaped by memory, current discourses, institutional practices, and ideologies. Top scholars will be enlisted to provide the most up–to–date and comprehensive coverage of developments in the field, and this new companion will be an authoritative guide for researchers, instructors and students in anthropology, folklore, and public history.
