Folklore Forum special issue Folklore of East Asia, 38:1 (2008) is Now Available Online

Folklore Forum is pleased to announce that we have both a new website,, and a new issue with which to christen it—Folklore of East Asia.

Folklore of East Asia is a tribute to Korean scholar Roger L. Janelli, who retired from Indiana University-Bloomington in 2007 after 32 years of distinguished scholarship. The issue includes four new articles from up and coming scholars that reflect well the cross-disciplinary interests and contributions of Janelli, as well as a farewell interview with Janelli himself.

Please visit our new website and join us in honoring the work of Roger L. Janelli.
