Local Learning Publications

The Journal of Folklore and Education is a peer-reviewed, multimedia, open-access journal that publishes work representing ethnographic approaches that tap the knowledge and life experience of students, their families, community members, and educators in K-16, higher education, museum, and community education. We intend our audience to be educators and students at all levels and in all settings, folk culture specialists, and those working in community-based organizations. As a digital publication, JFE provides a forum for interdisciplinary, multimedia approaches to community-based teaching, learning, and cultural stewardship.

Through the Schoolhouse Door: Folklore, Community, Curriculum: Winner of the 2012 Dorothy Howard Prize, this collection offers best practices and analysis dedicated not only to getting students out the door and into their communities to learn about the folk culture all around them but also to honoring the culture teachers and students bring in to the classroom. Digital edition now available.
