Brown Bag Lunches & Discussions
Work-In-Progress Brown Bag Lunches & Discussions
Bring your lunch and your comments for our faculty as they discuss current projects. Dates for the Winter and Spring Quarter brown bags will be announced at the beginning of each quarter. All three events will be held noon - 1:30 pm in the Folklore Lounge, Dulles 308.
Ray Cashman will discuss his fieldwork with an Irish storyteller and consider (with your help) how to conceptualize a book-length study based on one person and his or her “lore.” So far this project calls for reconsiderations of repertoire, worldview, sense of place, and the folkloristic and anthropological traditions of one-person studies.
