Welcome to the link for ‘Béascna’, the departmental’s postgraduate journal. ‘Béascna’ is one of only two scholarly journals in the Republic of Ireland publishing articles and reviews relating to Irish and European Folklore and Ethnology in general. ‘Béascna ‘was founded in 2002, in part to commemorate the establishment two years earlier of Roinn an Bhéaloidis: Department of Folklore and Ethnology. Produced on a biennial basis initially, the journal has since become an annual publication of significant standing.’Béascna’ is edited by members (both academic staff and postgraduate students) of Roinn an Bhéaloidis Departments of Folklore and Ethnology with one editor from Modern Irish. In line with the ethos of the department in general the journal seeks to encourage challenging and original academic articles and reviews in Irish and English. To date, published submissions have focussed material culture; popular religion; oral literature; oral history; gender in folklore and popular culture; fieldwork methodologies; digitization of folklore recordings; urban ethnology; history of folkloristics and ethnology; and interplay between folklore and literature. The journal also accepts interdisciplinary or other submissions which explore innovative critical approaches to the subject. One central aim of the journal is to provide a forum for furtherance of discipline-specific critical discourse in Irish. The mission of the journal is by no means limited to this, however. ‘Béascna’ contributes notably to the general furtherance of the discipline in the English speaking academic world. The journal has thus far attracted contributions by leading academics and established research postgraduate students in both Europe and America.
