Taylor Dooley Burden is the new Journal of Folklore and Education Reviews Editor. If you have a text, website, film, or resource that you would like to be considered for review in the Journal of Folklore and Education you may reach her at reviews@JFEpublications.org. We are grateful to Rebecca Smith, our outgoing Reviews Editor.
Taylor Dooley Burden is a folklorist from southern Indiana. She is a graduate student at Western Kentucky University where she is pursuing her MA in Folk Studies with a concentration in public folklore. In the spring she will be conducting a folklife survey of southern Indiana as part of her capstone project for her final semester in the program.
Burden is excited to step into the role of book reviews editor as an extension of her desire to work at the intersection of public folklore and folklore and education to do work that empowers individuals, engages communities, fosters equity, and promotes advocacy. She previously worked with Local Learning as an Intern in 2020.
Born and raised a Kentuckian, she now resides in Indiana with her husband and daughter, where they are preserving their 1861 Gothic Revival vernacular home.
