Titles for Review

Every issue of Western Folklore includes reviews of folkore-related books, films, and other media presentations. We welcome all inquiries and are especially pleased to hear from graduate students, junior faculty, public folklorists, and independent scholars who wish to contribute a review. Submission deadlines are generous and negotiable, but those interested in seeing their review in print are advised to consider the editorial deadlines indicated on the article Submissions page. Reviews follow a standard format, a description and an example of which may be found by clicking the Review Guidelines button at the bottom of the navigation bar to the left.

The list below provides titles available for review in Western Folklore. If you are interested in reviewing one or more items, please send a note to our Book Review Editor, Afsane Rezaei, at reviews@westernfolklore.org. Please include a CV and/or brief biographical statement about yourself with your request. If you are interested in reviewing a work that is not on the list, please contact the review editor that address. Be sure to provide author, title, and publisher so that the editor can find the book you want to review. Any works you review are of course yours to keep.

Some titles have affinities of subject or theme that potentially draw them together. Reviewers who wish to cover two or more related titles in a single review may write a combined review.
