Folk Arts in New York State: A Public Forum.
Blincoe, Deborah, Ed.; Forrest, John, Ed.
Journal of the New York Folklore Society, v15 n3-4 Sum-Fall 1989
A special theme issue of this biannually published journal illustrates a range of topics that public folklorists in New York state have addressed in their work. The first article, "Forty Years before the Mast: Sailing the Stormy and Serene Seas of Public Folklore" by Bruce R. Buckley, introduces the volume by setting public folklore in its social and political context. Public schools become a focus for many public folklore projects in the 1960s. Education programs in New York museums and local youth organizations gained new impetus during the 1970s. The 1980s may well be looked upon as the Golden Age of public folklore in New York State. Other articles in this issue include: "A Story Worth Telling: Publishing in the Public Sector" (Ellen McHale); "Folk Arts on the Radio: Issues in the Production of 'Old Traditions--New Sounds'" (Rebecca S. Miller); "The Making of 'God's Mother is the Morning Star': A Case Study in Videotaping an Elderly Folk Artist" (Karen D. Lux); "Trouble Shooting: Overcoming Problems of Collaboration in Film Production" (Peter Biella); "Fieldwork among White Russian Emigres: Some Conceptual Considerations" (Peter Voorheis); "Adirondack Balsam Pillows: Folk Art, Tourist Art, or Subsistence" (Todd DeGarmo); "The Government Giveth and the Government Taketh Away: Helping or Hindering Community Traditions?" (Varick A. Chittenden); and "A Disussion: Community Cultural Empowerment" (Daniel Frank Ward, ed.).
