The Center for Folklore Studies' Ohio Field School initiative has been awarded $26,035 from Ohio State's Connect & Collaborate grant, which is administered by the Office of Outreach and Engagement, to support Sharing Visions: Intergnerational Work in Appalachian Ohio.
The Center for Folklore Studies received a grant from the Public Narrative Collaborative and the Arts and Humanities Discovery Theme to commission Molly Rideout for the Portsmouth Public Writing Art Collaboration.
The Graduate Student Service Award for service to the Comparative Studies Department and its Students goes to Emma Cobb. Emma worked throughout the year as student rep to the graduate studies committee—an extensive commitment, but she did even more than that.
The Margaret Lynd Award for Excellence in Teaching by a Graduate Teaching Associate went to Caroline Toy for her outstanding work in writing instruction, in integrating fan studies into her courses, and for her interest in exploring online education.
Congratulations to Sarah Craycraft, who won the Richard Bjornson Prize for best essay by a graduate student for her paper “The Mule as Motif in the Ohio Valley Research Project,” based on a mid-20th century collection in the Folklore Archives!
Join the Center for Folklore Studies in hearty congratulations to Dr. Amanda Randhawa and Sydney Varajon!
