scandinavian and baltic studies

Folklore of the Nordic-Baltic Region
Professor Thomas A Dubois: Dept. of Scandinavian Studies, The University of Wisconsin-Madison
This series will make available in English substantive collections and analyses of oral tradition, particularly folktale and legend, from throughout the Nordic-Baltic region. Series titles will include reissues of important texts in the field as well as new studies focusing on the diverse oral traditions of Europe's northern periphery. In addition to ensuring the continued availability in print of important past works of folklore research, the series will also seek out new voices in the field, presenting novel approaches and theories in works which combine scholarly significance with an approachable style. The series will present the extensive oral traditions of these countries in a series of comparable, detailed works. This series would seek to become established as a series of first recourse for scholars, storytellers, and generalist readers interested in the vibrant oral traditions of the Nordic and Baltic region.
