Ballroom 4
Chair: Dorothy Noyes (The Ohio State University)

This panel is third in a four-part series on "Fake News" sponsored by the AFS New Directions in Folklore Section. 

In advance of the Annual Meeting, you can get to know two of the SIEF participants in the joint session, Petr Janeček and Elo-Hanna Seljamaa, by watching the newest Ethnological Sensations films that are online now:

  • Petr Janeček (Charles University, Prague) found his way to Ethnology through a story his grandmother told him when he was ten.
  • Elo-Hanna Seljamaa (University of Tartu) is fascinated by tools that Ethnology and Folklore Studies offer to go beyond facades and stereotypes.
