The publication Curatorial Conversations: Cultural Representation and the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, co-edited by Olivia Cadaval, Sojin Kim, and Diana Baird N’Diaye and published by the University Press of Mississippi, 2016, was among the projects that were recognized by the Smithsonian Institution 2017 Secretary’s Research Prizes presented by Secretary David J. Skorton and organized by the Smithsonian Congress of Scholars. This pan-Institutional prize recognizes excellence in recent research by the Institution’s employees.

Since its origins in 1967, the Smithsonian Folklife Festival has gained worldwide recognition as a model for the research and public presentation of living cultural heritage and the advocacy of cultural democracy. Curatorial Conversations: Cultural Representation and the Smithsonian Folklife Festival brings together for the first time in one volume the combined expertise of the Festival’s curatorial staff—past and present—in examining the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage’s representation practices and their critical implications for issues of intangible cultural heritage policy, competing globalisms, cultural tourism, sustainable development and environment, and cultural pluralism and identity.
