National Folklore and Folklife Organizations
Traditionally, academic and public/applied and independent folklorists have worked in separate realms, developing different sets of skills and diverse ways of working in their communities. However, in recent years there have been both formal and informal inroads made towards unifying the field, and it is possible to maintain an interest and gain experience in both areas. There are even some professional positions that draw upon public and academic folklore, hosted either by an arts service organization or an academic institution, so there is potential for combining public and academic work in one career.
