About the Journal

TFH: The Journal of History and Folklore is an online journal devoted to connections of folklore with history and to the history of folklore studies. TFH’s purview includes oral history, narrative, museology, local and regional history, and historiography. We accept research articles, bibliographic studies, historiography, and translations, among a range of other types of pieces that can elucidate the intersections of history and folklore studies. 

TFH continues the print journal The Folklore Historian. Back issues of The Folklore Historian from its founding in 1983 to 2008 are available online at the HathiTrust Digital Library. Back issues from 2009-2018 will be made available online in the near future.
