The Folklore Studies Association of Canada (FSAC) is an educational, non-profit association founded in 1976 for the purpose of supporting study and research in the field of folklore studies in all its aspects. FSAC is composed of over 200 members, including researchers, educators, students, and others with an interest in folklore. The Association is bilingual; English and French are its official languages. In accordance with this year’s Congress theme, we invite our conference participants to engage with the idea of “bridging divides” from a folkloristic perspective. How can we as folklorists, along with the groups and cultural expressions we study, shed light on the divisions—social, cultural, racial, ethnic, political, class, etc.—that permeate human experience? How can we contribute to the building of bridges to overcome such divides? We invite paper proposals that address these themes in relation to any aspect of folklore and folklife. Proposals for special panels, discussion sessions, and papers on other subjects related to folklore and ethnology are also welcome. Please visit our website for details.
