Contribution Form | Folklore and Museum Policy and Practice Working Group

In 2008, the American Folklore Society’s Executive Board, in order to engage the field of folklore more fully in public policy arenas where the perspectives and work of folklorists can make significant contributions, began supporting small (ca. 6-member) working groups to carry out a project at the intersection of folklore studies with an appropriate area of public policy. AFS has supported three such groups so far: the first worked on folklore and health policy issues, the second on folklore's contribution to historic preservation policy, and the third on ethnographic museum policy and practice.

This form is one means of sharing your own insights with the Folklore and Museum Policy and Practice Working Group. It will draw upon information provided here in its white paper and in planned publications relating to folklore and museums.

All questions on this form are optional, including those that solicit information on you. It is a means of gathering inputs that you would like to share. It is not a questionnaire, thus you do not need to puzzle out an answer for every question. Share what you wish to share--anonymously if you wish.

The working group will finalize its work in late 2014/early 2015, thus we invite you to contribute to this form prior to the end of November 2014.
