New Oral Tradition

The Center for Studies in Oral Tradition is pleased to announce the publication of the latest issue of our journal Oral Tradition, free of charge and available to all at

The articles in issue 23.2 encompass a wide range of subjects, including Native American digital storytelling, oral poetry slam in the U.K., Puerto Rican d├ęcima, memorial reconstruction in Finnish oral history, Anglo-Saxon charms in oral and manuscript contexts, Greek lament in the ancient and modern worlds, and scripted oral performance in the novels of Charles Dickens.

In addition to the current number, the Oral Tradition website houses the entire journal archive, with all 23 years of back issues fully searchable and accessible as downloadable pdf files.

In return, may we ask you to forward this e-mail announcement to at least five colleagues in your field? It would be especially helpful if you selected colleagues who might not already know that the entire run of the journal is now available gratis. Thank you for whatever you can do to help inform our community and share a resource that was created for the common good.

We welcome your comments and especially your submissions for publication.

Editor, Oral Tradition
