National & Kapodistrian University of Athens, School of Philosophy, Department of Philology FOLKLORE MUSEUM & ARCHIVES

The history of the Folklore Museum and Archives (FMA) reflect the history of the discipline of folklore (laografia) in Greek academic life. Their establishment and function are inextricably linked to the theory and practice of folklore in Greece and to the training of folklorists, and of educationalists generally concerned with Greek folk and popular culture. It was founded in 1965, when Georgios K. Spyridakis, then Professor of Folklore (1964-1972), with the help of his assistant, Maria Milingkou, embarked on the creation of an Archive of Manuscript Collections of Folklore Material attached to the Spoudasterion Laografias (Folklore Study Centre and Specialized Library).
