This conference is a space for graduate and undergraduate students to share their research in folklore, ethnomusicology, anthropology, cultural studies, material culture, literary studies, performance studies, and related disciplines connected to the study of academic and vernacular interpretations of everyday life.

The theme for this year’s conference is Dialogues. Recent events have illuminated the necessity of dialogues for fruitful collaboration, both in academia and the world at large, as well as their relationship to and role in agency and dissent. Accordingly, we are seeking proposals in answer to questions such as: 

  • In what ways can activism inform and influence the work of folklorists and ethnomusicologists?  
  • What are our roles and responsibilities as ethnographers and researchers? How can we make our scholarship more accessible to a broader range of audiences?
  • How can we employ collaborative ethnography to better understand and represent emic conceptualizations of knowledge? 
  • In what ways can students help foster engagement between the academic and the public spheres?
  • How can we better understand the ways in which space and place play a role in hierarchies and constructs of power as well as their contestation? 
  • How can we open and sustain dialogues between institutions, the disciplines of folklore and ethnomusicology, and students and faculty?
