Visual communications from the International Society for Ethnology and Folklore.
Starting from May 2020 we are releasing one video a month under the title Ethnological Matterings: the series shows a whole gallery of E&F lines of work. In order to raise the awareness of diverse ways in which our fields can be applied, the emphasis is on the diversity of professions in which ethnological and folklorist knowledge and skills come to "matter". View the films.
Check out a new resource for teachers, students, and scholars of ethnology, folklore, and related fields - Sensation Station: We introduce a portal for ethnological sensations, categorized by theme (from "Body, senses, emotions" to "Rituals and feasts", from "Fieldwork" to "Museums and archives", and from "Houses and homes" to "Migration and mobility", to name just a few). Take a look, try playing with it, and invite your students to do the same (it works on your smartphone too). View the new resource.
