In October 2018, the American Folklife Center published La tradición popular y la investigación de campo, the Spanish-language version of the 4th edition of Folklife and Fieldwork. A team at AFC and beyond have been working hard to make the field manual even more useful by translating it into some of the world’s most widely spoken languages.

On behalf of the AFC team, which includes John Fenn, the head of the Research and Programs section; Betsy Peterson, AFC’s director; contributors Nancy Groce, Maggie Kruesi, and Guha Shankar; Stephen Winick, as co-author and editor of the book; and especially the manual’s late co-author, Peter Bartis, the AFC thanks the principal translator Juan Manuel Pérez of the Library of Congress Hispanic Division, Carlos J. Olave and the rest of the Hispanic Division staff, Olivia Cadaval of the Smithsonian’s  Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, and everyone else who helped on this project.

Click here, to download a PDF of La Tradición Popular y la Investigación de Campo. For print copies contact the AFC at The manual will also be available in Mandarin soon.

You can read about the history of Folklife and Fieldwork at this blog post, and you can download the English-language version here.  And as always, you can get free copies of either Folklife and Fieldwork or La tradición popular y la investigación de campo, by writing to and requesting them.
