Abstract

This article argues that the political and social developments of the current American moment represent a crisis for folkloristics and other humanistic fields that goes well beyond pragmatic concerns. It makes the case that, in response, we must conduct (or reinvigorate) sustained conversations about how we as scholars of folk cultures should engage with our subjects and with the public more broadly.
