A new online journal of Greek America, Ergon, co-edited by Ohio State folklore affiliate Yiorgos Anagnostou, features an extended interview with Tarpon Springs folklorist Tina Bucuvalas on her field experiences in Greek American and Latino communities as well as her career in Florida’s public folklife institutions, conducted by folklore student Sydney Varajon.

In addition, there’s an essay on composing new “night-rhymes” in the Cretan mantinada tradition, by OSU folklore alum Eric Ball, now Professor at Empire State University, as an experiment in egalitarian participatory music-making.
