Open Book Publishers releases "Storytelling in Northern Zambia" online 0 L. Cashman From: Open Book Publishers, general@openbookpublishers.comNew release: "Storytelling in Northern Zambia: Theory, Method, Practice and Other Necessary Fictions," by Robert CancelAt a time when the idea of the traditional book is rapidly changing, this work harnesses the potential of digital technologies to allow readers to access the primary sources on which research is based. A collection and analysis of northern Zambia’s oral narrative traditions, this book pioneers a new integration of critical text and original audio-visual material, enabling you to watch videos of the storytellers while you read.Cancel’s thorough critical interpretation, meanwhile, makes "Storytelling in Northern Zambia" a much needed addition to the slender corpus of African folklore studies that deal with storytelling performance. Cancel threads his way between the complex demands of African fieldwork studies, folklore theory, narrative modes, reflexive description and simple documentation and succeeds in bringing to the reader a set of performers and their performances that are vivid, varied and instructive. His study tells us not only about storytelling but sheds light on the study of oral literatures throughout Africa and beyond."Storytelling in Northern Zambia" was published on 16 July 2013 and can be read for free online here: <http://www.openbookpublishers.com/product/137> where it is also available in inexpensive digital, paperback and hardback editions.Open Book Publishers is a non-profit organisation, run by academics in Cambridge and London. We are committed to making high-quality research freely available to readers around the world. We rely on our friends and associates to assist in publicizing our books, and we thank you for your support.Contact Catherine Heygate, assistant editor, for more details about this volume or what we do at OBP.

Stori Tumbuna: Ancestors’ Tales: A Film by Paul Wolffram 0 L. Cashman From Documentary Educational Resources: "This is a story of the Lak people. It's also a story of how I came to know the people of the region and how my story became forever woven into their own… I was to become enmeshed in events that resulted in bloodshed and death. What's more, I was held responsible.” In 2001 Paul Wolffram, a cultural researcher, travelled to one of the most isolated and unique corners of the earth. He eventually spent over two years living and working among the Lak people in the rainforest of Papua New Guinea. As his relationships with the people grew he began to glimpse a hidden reality, a dark and menacing history that loomed over his host community. Over time the sense that something is amiss grows. As his curiosity deepens Paul brings to light dark secrets that set in motion a compelling and deadly set of events. Conceived as an opportunity for the Lak to tell their stories in their way, Stori Tumbuna: Ancestors' Tales was shot over several years and takes its structure from the traditional mythologies of the region. Unlike most films based on the lives of traditional communities that are told from the point of view of an outsider this film adopts indigenous narrative structures and presents a collaborative account that privileges local points of view and the Lak ethos. Order from the Documentary Educational Resources website, or by calling the office at 617-926-0491 or toll-free at 800-569-662.

Smokin’ Fish: A Film by Luke Griswold-Tergis and Cory Mann 0 L. Cashman From Documentary Education Resources:Cory Mann is a quirky Tlingit businessman hustling to make a dollar in Juneau Alaska.  He gets hungry for smoked salmon, nostalgic for his childhood, and decides to spend a summer smoking fish at his family's traditional fish camp. The unusual story of his life and the untold history of his people interweave with the process of preparing traditional food as he struggles to pay his bills, keep the IRS off his back, and keep his business afloat. By turns tragic, bizarre, or just plain ridiculous, Smokin' Fish tells the story of one man's attempts to navigate the messy zone of collision between the modern world and an ancient culture.   Order from the Documentary Educational Resources website, or by calling the office at 617-926-0491 or toll-free at 800-569-662.

Ethnologia Europaea: Journal of European Ethnology 42:2 (2012) out now 0 L. Cashman Ethnologia Europaea: Journal of European Ethnology - Vol. 42:2 2012 is now available:Print version: http://www.mtp.hum.ku.dk/details.asp?eln=300320e-version: http://www.mtp.hum.ku.dk/details.asp?eln=300323Special issue: Imagined Families in Mobile WorldsAbstractThough a seemingly stable concept in ethnological work, "family" as a lived reality took and takes on innumerable forms shaped by economic pressures, mobility and attendant social transformations, and biotechnical interventions. The case studies in this special issue focus on the ways in which social actors seek to concretize as well as control what family could or should be.While (bio-)technological innovation proves vital to fulfill traditional imaginaries of a nuclear family, communication technology is a key to keep transnationally situated families in contact. Still, transnational work opportunities conflict with traditional imaginaries of the wholesome families and impact particularly women seeking to cross both borders and established family norms. Popular genealogy as a hobby and passion uncovers evidence that counters established narratives: instead of long-term sedentary family lineages, evidence of migration muddies the waters. Family metaphor, finally, serves, in one of the case studies, as a vocabulary to materialize imaginary kinship ties among nuns. The five case studies are complemented by four commentaries, exploring paths along which these themes can be developed further.Table of contentsKaren Körber and Ina Merkel:Imagined Families in Mobile Worlds.

Brooks follows American folk ballads back across the Atlantic, uncovering an archaeology of the worldviews of America’s earliest immigrants and a haunting historical perspective on the ancestors we thought we knew.PRAISE FOR WHY WE LEFT:"Why We Left draws creatively on early folk ballads of England and America to make a surprising, bold, and altogether brilliant contribution to our understanding of why people crossed the Atlantic to live in a strange new world. Haunting voices sing to us across the centuries a rich and disturbing ‘history from below.’" —Marcus Rediker, author of The Amistad Rebellion: An Atlantic Odyssey of Slavery and Freedom"Joanna Brooks compellingly recreates the lives of British peasants who came to the New World.  She traces their collective memories through the folk ballads sung by their descendants and collected diligently by scholars and revivalists. Riveting, harrowing, Why We Left will forever change the way we listen to ‘folk music.’" —Charles McGovern, William and MaryABOUT THE AUTHOR:Joanna Brooks is professor and chair of the Department of English and Comparative Literature at San Diego State University. She has authored or edited five books on early American literature, history, and culture, including American Lazarus: Religion and the Rise of African-American and Native American Literatures and Transatlantic Feminisms in the Age of Revolutions.

People of African descent in Europe 0 r. lotz  There does not seem to be a forum on Black Studies or Black Americana? 'Black Europe' – a 44-CD Boxed Set (LP-Size) with two 300-page hardcover books, a total of 1,244 tracks. Total playing time approx. 56 hrs and 30 mns. Now, after several years in the making, the set will finally be available to the public in October.   The edition will be strictly limited to 500 copies, worldwide. All orders received prior to August 1, 2013 will get an individually numbered copy.   Please, note: Subscription price, valid until December 31, 2013: € 499.00 incl. free shipping worldwide Regular price: € 750.00    You may view sample pages on this website: www.black-europe.com   Tel. +49 (0) 4748 8216 0 Fax.: +49 (0) 4748 8216 20   email: info@bear-family.de   What is it about? Black men and women – long present in Europe – have been overlooked as pioneering personalities in modern mass media. From the early years of the recording industry, people of African descent were featured on European phonograph cylinders, gramophone discs and in movies and still images. Their music, speech and dance, in all styles, categories, and languages provide a rich resource.   In more than 100 chapters Black Europe will be documenting and chronicling evidence of some 2,000 recordings and 200 films.  This scattered and almost forgotten treasury runs from the 1880s to the late 1920s and the invention of the microphone. Rare originals have been lovingly restored using modern technology. Black Europe includes biographies of hundreds of individuals – politicians, performers, actors and entertainers - from the United States, Africa, the Caribbean and Europe who were active in Europe. Their biographies are illustrated with a treasure trove of documents, official photos and family pictures, as well as contemporary sheet music, concert posters and promotional flyers and postcards.  The majority of the rare sound recordings included with the book are made available for the first time in a modern format, and will provide fresh insights into black entertainment, the prehistory of jazz, the colonial era, and African languages and cultures. Original recording sheets and hundreds of pictures showing cylinders and gramophone record labels illustrate the beginnings of the 20th century record business. The vast majority of the sound recordings in this set is made available for the first time. From African-Americans comes an aural kaleidoscope of entertainers and music from the last days of minstrelsy through ragtime and music hall artists to string bands, spirituals, and the early days of jazz in Europe, including the earliest examples of stride piano and rhythm scat singing, and some of the first records made anywhere of African-American folk music practices. Historians of jazz and blues have for the first time the opportunity to hear the complete output of the African-American string bands which recorded in London in the teens, the pioneering multi-racial recordings of Vorzanger’s Band and the Queens’ Dance Orchestra, and the complete Paris recordings of Mitchell’s Jazz Kings. From Africans come ethnological and commercial recordings of African languages and folk tales, religious music on both African and European models, and recordings of the popular music of the 1920s. Also documented is the involvement of those born in Europe of African descent in the wider culture of the African diaspora. Each track is profusely documented in the discographical data that comes with each chapter.    Dr Rainer E. LotzRotdornweg 8153177 BonnGermany Email: rainer-lotz (at) gmx.de

New release: Tradition in the 21st Century: Locating the Role of the Past.. 0 L. Cashman Tradition in the 21st CenturyLocating the Role of the Past in the Present by Trevor J. Blank & Robert Glenn Howard, eds   In Tradition in the Twenty-First Century, eight diverse' contributors explore the role of tradition in contemporary folkloristics. For more than a century, folklorists have been interested in locating sources of tradition and accounting for the conceptual boundaries of tradition, but in the modern era, expanded means of communication, research, and travel, along with globalized cultural and economic interdependence, have complicated these pursuits. Tradition is thoroughly embedded in both modern life and at the center of folklore studies, and a modern understanding of tradition cannot be fully realized without a thoughtful consideration of the pastýs role in shaping the present. Emphasizing how tradition adapts, survives, thrives, and either mutates or remains stable in today's modern world, the contributors pay specific attention to how traditions now resist or expedite dissemination and adoption by individuals and communities. This complex and intimate portrayal of tradition in the twenty-first century offers a comprehensive overview of the folkloristic and popular conceptualizations of tradition from the past to present and presents a thoughtful assessment and projection of how "tradition" will fare in years to come. The book will be useful to advanced undergraduate or graduate courses in folklore and will contribute significantly to the scholarly literature on tradition within the folklore discipline. ISBN: 978-0-87421-899-2Pages: 256Illustrations: 3 b&w photos, 1 figurePaper, $27.95 Adobe Digital Edition Ebook, $22.00  Order now at http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?llr=4qawcycab&v=001mwaRHiQxrQfkm552Ik34NFbSIfdMBj52zaMT0WE-XZFjinqLzHj8hA3dCCGF6hXlYszyS2Jr6-yIZ_DeqX_pqX-alHn3KOJg20UrML0UkEW1Yn3o1wspUTynFTjld042hGyw4r_Fh67UfIr0OkPOwIcBizL0xUkk5FoXBcHePYFwpJtzs2eqPr_lE7Hx8ujXTWlOOAPCkwE%3DKindle, iBook, Nook and other ebook editions are also available.

New release: Second Line Rescue: Improvised Responses to Katrina and Rita 0 L. Cashman Second Line Rescue: Improvised Responses to Katrina and RitaEdited by Barry Jean Ancelet, Marcia Gaudet and Carl LindahlISBN 978-1-61703-796-2, hardback, $35How distressed citizens created their own salvation when official recourse failedSecond Line Rescue: Improvised Responses to Katrina and Rita (University Press of Mississippi) chronicles the brave and creative acts through which Gulf Coast people rescued their neighbors during the chaotic aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. In the tradition of New Orleans second lining, ordinary citizens joined in with whatever resources they had. Unlike many of the official responders, vernacular rescuers found ways around the paralysis and were able to dispel unfounded fears produced by erroneous or questionable reporting.The essays, personal narratives, media reports, and field studies presented here all have to do with effective and often ingenious answers that emerged from the people themselves. Taken together, these reports provide a perspective remarkably different that reported by media outlets seven years ago.The first part of this collection deals with Gulf Coast rescuers from outside stricken communities: those who, safe in their own homes and neighborhoods, marshaled their resources to help their fellow citizens. The second part of the book features the words of hurricane survivors displaced from New Orleans and other Gulf Coast communities to Houston, Texas. In many cases, the "victims” themselves were the first responders, rescuing themselves along with family, friends, and strangers. All of the stories, whether from "outside” or "inside” responders, reveal a shared history of close-knit community bonds and survival skills sharpened by hard times.Second Line Rescue: Improvised Responses to Katrina and Rita is the first book to focus on the local people, inside New Orleans and from the nearby coastal regions. Each part of this book articulates and documents the power of vernacular response. It is about what went right in the aftermath of Katrina and Rita—in spite of all that went so wrong.With contributions from:François Ancelet, Josef Brown, Charles A. Darensbourg, Mike Davis, Jocelyn H. Donlon, Jon G. Donlon, Nicole Eugene, Anthony Fontenot, Ernest J. Gaines, Glenda Harris, Sidney Harris, Chantell Jones, Robert LeBlanc, Glen Miguez, Shari L.

The volume of articles  addresses diverse narratives in the Eastern European cultural space as they occur in various types of media. Parallel research articles by scholars from a wide range of  fields seek to provide a novel perspective on the ongoing discussions of identity in these rapidly changing societies. Research material for Volume 2 "Perspectives on national and regional identity” is drawn from a variety of sources, both contemporary, e.g. advertisement campaigns, urban legends, cookbooks, etc. and archival, especially folklore materials. The analysis of culturally significant narratives helps to specify their role in the construction of collective identity. The results of the studies demonstrate that both national and regional identities are at least partly determined by concepts and stories shared by the people, but at the same time they are the products of external variables, such as public policies or globalisation.Contents:A.
