An open, online space by and for young, hip folklorists. A place to share contemporary folkloric research work with a wider audience. In addition, we will provide resources to up and coming young folklorists in the field whose interests and achievements highlight the definition of Folklore as given by the American Folklore Society. Through our website and continued efforts to create an ongoing discourse around emergent folklore, or “hip folk,” we hope to reinvigorate the discipline and unite young folklorists working to document, preserve, research and investigate contemporary cultures around the world.
