Ethnologies is the primary instrument for the promotion of teaching, research and knowledge transfer in the field of ethnology in Quebec and the rest of Canada. Founded in 1979 and formerly called Canadian Folklore Canadien, in 1998 it changed its name to Ethnologies, a pluralized title that expresses the publication's bilingualism, a characteristic that enables it to connect with numerous ethnologists in various countries. The plural name also reflects the discipline's diverse contemporary approaches and its multiple areas of study. Ethnologies brings together these multiple approaches in theme issues whose equally varied covers are illustrated by contemporary Canadian artists.

The Journal gratefully acknowledges grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture (FQRSC), as well as the collaboration of the Centre interuniversitaire d’études sur les lettres, les arts et les traditions (CELAT), Laval University.
