The Folklore of Folklorists
I just wanted to spread the word that Libby Tucker and I are planning to begin work on a project about the folklore of folklorists in the coming months and would love to hear from the AFS community! Of course, the collected data in such a project is of great interest, so if you have any stories, anecdotes, jokes-- heck, just about anything folkloric--about your fellow folklorists, the discipline itself, your own research's quirks; your own experiences, opinions, and/or beliefs (interpret however broadly or narrowly as you would like); pedagogical tips or narratives from university teaching/ service experiences; "student horror stories"; or suggestions for approaches to such collected material and their interpretation, feel free to drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org
) or post to this discussion forum. Indeed, any and all input is greatly appreciated, and I'd whole-heartedly endorse posting and responding here in an effort to create a stimulating dialogue here in the AFS forums as well!
Thanks for your time and input!
All the best,
