CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

PHOTO EXHIBITION "FACES OF FIELDWORK”

AT THE MATHERS MUSEUM OF WORLD CULTURES

INDIANA UNIVERSITY

FALL 2011

Pravina Shukla and Carrie Hertz from the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology at Indiana University are curating an exhibition entitled "Faces of Fieldwork,” to run in the fall semester of 2011, to coincide with the American Folklore Society meeting at the IU campus during that time. We are now soliciting photo submissions from all members of the American Folklore Society.

The aim of the exhibit is to highlight the human dimension of fieldwork—as Robert A. Georges and Michael Owen Jones state, of "people studying people.” We wish to feature portraits of individual informants—the most human way to give a face and a name to people often treated as composite, anonymous "folk.” These portraits will speak to one of the missions of the fieldworker: to represent the people we encounter not only through their craft, songs, words, but also through the photographic medium—the portrait that will be used in publications, oral presentations, and exhibitions.

Submission procedure:

-- Submit up to 3 portraits of informants

-- Each photograph should include the following information:

1. Name of subject

2. One to two word description – basket maker, weaver, storyteller, etc.

3. Place, date/year

4. Name of photographer

-- Please send us the photograph in digital format, as a 150dpi @ 11x14

-- Include your name and contact info in case we select your photograph

-- Send the photograph as either an attachment to this email address:

faces.of.fieldwork@gmail.com

or on a CD mailed to:

Pravina Shukla

Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology

Bloomington, IN, 47408


--ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE RECIEVED BY March 31.

If you have any questions, please contact Pravina Shukla at pravina@indiana.edu or Carrie Hertz at clhertz@indiana.edu.
