Full Title: RMN Newsletter

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Call Deadline: 15-Mar-2011

RMN Newsletter (ISSN 1799-4497) is an open access bi-annual publication of
Folklore Studies / Department of Philosophy, History, Culture and Art
Studies, University of Helsinki. Issues appear in May and December of each


The newsletter is oriented to constructing an informational resource and
discourse space for researchers of diverse, intersecting disciplines who
share common interests in the problems, strategies, values and limitations
of comparative and diachronic research related to:

* investigations into the history underlying the diverse and variegated
evidence of a tradition or other cultural phenomenon (e.g. a lexical item,
conceptual schema, narrative, belief, etc.);
* relationships between evidence of a tradition or other cultural
phenomenon manifested in different historical periods;
* relationships and historical processes underlying manifestations of a
tradition or other cultural phenomenon encountered across multiple cultures;
* and the potentials and limitations of analogical comparisons between
living/recent traditions or cultural phenomena and those of earlier
historical periods for which evidence is extremely limited.

These interests are not bound to any one discipline, and the increasing
movement toward interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary study and research
projects makes it important to have a multidisciplinary informational
resource. The orientation of the newsletter is not the publication of
research articles. It is instead oriented toward information about events,
people, activities, technologies, and research which is ongoing or has been
recently completed. We invite you to participate in this process by
submitting abstracts of your own relevant presentations and publications as
reports and announcements so that other scholars with similar interests can
be made aware and remain up to date on what you are doing. It also
constructs a venue in which scholars can engage in discussion rather than
constraining contributions to the conclusions of research (present in your
summaries for rapid survey, directing the reader to the full publication).
RMN Newsletter is formatted to be searchable, so that you will be able to
find other scholars doing work in the areas of your interests by using the
relevant key words.

RMN Newsletter welcomes and promotes its readership to engage in the
discourse space which it offers. We also promote an awareness that your
contribution to and engagement with the voices presented will support,
maintain and also shape this emergent discourse space. Please visit us at

Guidelines for submissions are available at:


The emerging generation of scholars is extremely important across our
diverse disciplines. It is important for us to both be aware of that
generation and open contact with it. RMN Newsletter therefore has sections
devoted to summaries of ongoing or recently completed doctoral dissertation
and master thesis research. We would greatly appreciate it if you could
forward this information to your relevant students: every publication is
significant on a young researcher's CV, and we welcome the opportunity to
be a place of first publication.

With warm regards and welcome,

Frog, Helen F. Leslie and Mathias Nordvig.
