Thursday, April 14, 2016 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Folklore Archives, 218 Ohio Stadium, 1961 Tuttle Park Pl.
Undergraduate Archives Assistant, Annie Craycraft, has been organizing, accessioning, digitizing, and reading the Student Ethnographic Papers since her freshman year in 2013, transforming them from a series of boxes, folders, and tapes in our processing room into a neatly organized collection in our archives. With Annie's help, the Folklore Archives is close to having a comprehensive list of all of our paper and non-digitally-based student projects, which faculty and students will be able to search by keyword or title. Along the way, Annie took time to read a number of the projects, noticing trends not only in content but also assignment style and technological changes over the past 50 years.
Annie will discuss some of her favorite papers, including:
- Small World Experiences
- Hopkins Hall Handprint
- Grateful Dead
- The Thin Man
- and popular project topics such as Crybaby Bridge, the Melonheads, and Gore Orphanage!
Annie's presentation will be especially useful to anyone who is interested in learning about how they can use the collections in the Folklore Archive for their own research or as teaching material for their classes.
Join us at the Folklore Archives to hear about Annie's archival process and to hear some interesting stories!
