Folklolre and Anthropology: A one-day symposium jointly hosted by The Folklore Society and The Royal Anthropological Institute.

Anthropology and Folklore Studies had a common origin, and today have many areas of common interest in topics, research methods and theory. In this one-day symposium, which is intended to be an annual event, 6 younger scholars (3 from each society) will give extended presentations on current research. There will be generous opportunity to discuss papers as part of the presentation and in a final roundtable session. The symposium will be jointly chaired by Prof. James H. Grayson (Sheffield), President of The Folklore Society, and Dr David Shankland, Director of the RAI.
