Congratualtions to Rachel Hopkin, who successfully defended her dissertation! Her committee included Amy Shuman, Advisor, Dorry Noyes, Katey Borland, and Ana Cara (from Oberlin College). The outside examiner, Madhumita Dutta from Geography, was excellent.
During the last Annual Meeting of the American Folklore Society in Baltimore, our colleague Amy Shuman was awarded the Lifetime Scholarly Achievement Award.
Congratulations to CFS alumna Ziying You, whose co-edited volume Chinese Folklore Studies Today: Discourse and Practice has just been published by Indiana University Press!
