Call for papers

Having crossed the threshold of the millennium, people are overwhelmed by new intellectual, cultural and social challenges, which are brought about by the present time. Changes and demands are expanding, for this reason we feel a relentless need to go in search of new tools, we are constantly forced to rethink and revalorize old perspectives, the alterations in the social and cultural patterns require us to push further the boundaries and to step out of the disciplinary borders. Ethnographica et Folkloristica Carpathica’s aim is to provide an international forum for researchers where these questions can be discussed with the hope of shedding light and understanding their wider historical-geographical-social-cultural background and presenting one or two answers to these increasing challenges.

The topic of the journal’s new issue focuses on the Untold narratives, invisible marks where we invite researchers to intervene in the debate over the new perspectives in Ethnography, Folklore and Cultural Anthropology, to investigate the cultural elements which have been excluded from the canon, to give voice to those who have been silenced and to give space to the marginalized genres of the disciplines. Submissions should address and answer any of the following themes: 

  1. New values and preferences in the discipline
  2. Texts, works, objects, elements excluded from cultural canon
  3. Old narratives new meanings: the phenomenon of revival
  4. Unheard stories, silenced groups, marginalized genres
  5. The directions of folklorism: folklorism, neofolklorism, postfolklorism
  6. The processes of folklorization, heritagization and instituzionalization
  7. Stepping out of the disciplinary borders: new perspectives in the research methodology of Ethnography and Cultural Anthropology

The manuscript can be written in English or German.

The deadline of the submission is the 1st of April, 2021.
