Databases Available for Folklorists to Volunteer to Visit Courses During the Pandemic

Tuesday, August 11, 2020   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Ben Bridges

In light of growing concerns surrounding the pandemic's impact on higher education, instructors in the humanities and social sciences are volunteering their names for guest lecture exchange databases. If an instructor cannot teach their class due to illness or other complications, the database assists in finding a substitute colleague to deliver a live or prerecorded guest lecture. University instructors as well as advanced graduate students, museum professionals, and other public folklorists can add their information to these resources.


For the humanities and social sciences generally, interested parties can complete this formFor more information, contact Stephanie Frank from Columbia College Chicago at


For folklore specifically, interested parties can edit this spreadsheet, created by AFS member Andrea Kitta. Folklorists who are able to assist are encouraged to add their name, expertise, and already available resources to the list.
