Aim & Scope
ARV means heritage. ARV, Nordic Yearbook of Folklore, presents our mental heritage, folklore, as the foundation of our culture, our patterns of interaction and our world view. Folklore, i.e. popular poetry, belief and custom, is an important identity factor for every nation in historical as well as recent times. ARV was founded in 1945 as a common Nordic journal and it is still published by the Royal Gustavus Adolphus Academy in Uppsala, Sweden. Read ARV and keep in touch with recent Nordic folklore and neighbouring disciplines. During the last decade scholars such as Peter Burke, E. William Monter, Brian P.Levack, Gustav Henningsen, Lauri Honko, Nils-Arvid Bringéus and Bengt af Klintberg have contributed.
