Fifty four years ago, Stith Thompson published his article "The Challenge of Folklore" (PMLA 79, no.4 (1964), 357-365) in which he described in broad terms the challenge of folklore to civilization in history and in modernity. In the last fifty years since then, folklore scholarship expanded by leaps and bounds, exploring new directions, new theories, new territories and offering thereby challenging perspectives for the humanities.
