Storytelling in Schools
SEEFA is a non-profit organization devoted to an exchange of knowledge among scholars interested in Slavic and East European folklore. It seeks to promote instruction, to organize panels at national and international conferences, to encourage the preparation of teaching materials and translations, and to foster exchanges, summer programs, and research in Slavic and East European Folklore and related fields such as anthropology, ethnic studies, history, literature, and musicology.
SEEFA publishes a journal twice a year.
• Storytelling, Self and Society — A double-blind peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal that invites scholarship addressing any topic related to storytelling -- from its role as performing art to contemporary applications in a variety of professional fields. They welcome manuscripts from scholars in humanities and social science disciplines, (including psychology, library science, literary studies, folklore, anthropology, sociology, communication, rhetoric, performance studies, theatre, history, feminist and queer studies, and ethnography) as well as from storytelling artists and practitioners, including those applying storytelling in the fields of education, health care, social work, business, law, peace-building and environmental education.
Storytelling is a hyperlink discipline, which stands at the headwaters of all disciplinarity in education and cultural transmission. In the course of telling a story, one is able to yoke together issues of history, sociology, anthropology, literature, music, theatre, psychology, religion, law, medicine, communication, and more, all through the natural linkages of the narrative mode.
