Aims and Scope

Fabula is an international medium of discussion for all issues relevant to historical and comparative folk narrative research. The fully peer-reviewed journal contains seven sections: articles, shorter contributions, research and conference reports, information, reviews, books received, announcements of the ISFNR. The article section deals with the study of popular narrative tradition in its various forms (folktales, legends, jokes and anecdotes, exempla, fables, ballads, pictorial media, contemporary genres) and with the interrelationship between oral and literary traditions. Interest focuses on Europe and its spheres of influence, which does, however, not exclude contributions from other cultural areas.


Fabula is an organ of the International Society for Folk Narrative Research (ISFNR).
