  • Introduction: Difference and Dialogism in Family Narratives
    • Abstract: in their exploration of the folkloric potential of transient gatherings, Gary Alan Fine and Lisa-Jo van den Scott identify the family as the quintessential strong-tie group, exhibiting dense, multiplex networks that are shaped internally by family culture and legitimized externally by social and legal contracts. "Belonging to a functioning, stable family validates one's status in civil society," they argue, "even if the distance between the image of the perfect family and one's daily life makes it an imagined community par excellence" (Fine and van den Scott 2011:1322). Sheila Bock and Kate Parker Horigan have recently argued that, depending on one's perspective, family is either the greatest challenge to or the ... Read More

  • "Every kid is where they're supposed to be, and it's a miracle": Family
           Formation Stories among Adoptive Families
    • Abstract: Storytelling is pushed to its limits both by the use of a particular story beyond the context of the experience it represents and by the use of a personal story to represent a collective experience…. I understand the first as the problem of entitlement and the second as the problem of the allegorical…. It is the intersection of the two limits that produces what I see as the greatest complexity and the greatest source of both the promise of storytelling and its condemnation. We ask, who has the right to tell a story, who is entitled to it' And we ask, is this representation a sufficient, adequate, accurate, or appropriate rendering of experience'"How did your child become part of your family'" For most parents, such ...

  • When Mary Went through the Hole: Constructing and Contesting Individual
           and Family Identity through Narrative
    • Abstract: the time she fell through a second-floor heating vent as a young child is a story Mary has told many times. As what Sandra Stahl (now Dolby) refers to as a "stable repeated narrative" ([1989] 2008:223), it is not only part of her own narrative repertoire—or "inner library," to use Arthur Frank's term (2010:54)—but of her family's as well. Although the incident on which the story is based now took place more than 80 years ago, Mary still tells it at least once or twice a year to her brother Bill, a participant in the incident, as well as to younger members of the family who might be present. But Bill remembers things differently, and he repeatedly challenges Mary's account. What do these different narrative ... Read More

  • Co-Narration, Intersubjectivity, and the Listener in Family Storytelling
    • Abstract: scholarly publications draw selectively upon field research to illuminate or advance a particular point. Returning to tape-recorded interviews conducted decades ago provides the opportunity to re-encounter the voices that animated one's earlier project and to contemplate the multiplicity of interpretive possibilities that did not fit into the explanatory frame one had constructed at the time. However, returning to old fieldwork can be problematic for scholars who advocate a contextual approach to determining meaning. In my case, my interlocutors, who were also my grandparents, have died, Frank in 1999, Bea in 2003. Follow-up interviewing to collect oral literary criticism, address gaps in the record, or test my own ... Read More

  • Parts of Myself I Didn't Know Were Missing: A Personal Encounter with the
           Holocaust
    • Abstract: We continue the journeyonce i became a folklorist, my father's double first cousin, whom I called "Uncle Nat," would say, "So you'll write a family history," to which I would think, Folklorists don't do history. However, since I had loved to listen to the grown-ups telling each other about the chaotic collection of oddball cousins and single-minded grandparents, their journeys from the seemingly mythical before-place referred to as the heim, and the new lives they made for themselves in England and the United States, I am known to have a repertoire of stories and am often referred to as the "family historian."But what does Uncle Nat have to do with this paper' Why did his suggestion linger in my mind despite my ...

  • William Albert "Bert" Wilson (1933–2016)
    • Abstract: Born September 23, 1933, in Tremonton, Utah, William Albert "Bert" Wilson grew up in Downey, Idaho. From a family of homesteaders, railroaders, storytellers, and farmers in Marsh Valley, Bert was the first to attend college, majoring in English at Brigham Young University (BYU). His three-year mission to Finland for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the mid-1950s set the course for his distinguished career as a folklorist and his cherished marriage and family life with Hannele Blomqvist.No ivory tower scholar, Bert Wilson has been an architect and builder whose work, with wit and warmth, encompasses critical thinking, writing, leading, teaching, and mentoring. Bert's scholarship illustrates a ... Read More

  • Pocahontas and Sacagawea: Interwoven Legacies in American History by Cyndi
           Spindell Berck (review)
    • Abstract: Though Cyndi Spindell Berck's book is called Pocahontas and Sacagawea: Interwoven Legacies in American History, only a small portion of the work actually focuses on the two women named in the title. Only two out of the 11 chapters focus on Pocahontas and Sacagawea. The book is, in fact, a history of Native American-white relations in what is now the United States from the early stages of British colonization through the settlement of the West. Pocahontas' story acts as a starting point for this history, while Sacagawea's serves as a significant waypoint; the book concludes with the story of a third Native American woman, Sarah Winnemucca, the so-called Paiute Princess. A short epilogue discusses the contemporary ... Read More

  • Maithil Women's Tales: Storytelling on the Nepal-India Border by Coralynn
           V. Davis (review)
    • Abstract: Maithil Women's Tales is a deep cultural study of folktales narrated by women in the region of Mithila, especially in the town of Janakpur and the rural vicinity marking Nepal's eastern Tarai region, where the author has conducted research for nearly 20 years. As Davis tells us, Mithila and Janakpur are enshrined in Indic storylore as the natal home of Sita, the heroine-princess of the pan-South Asian epic of the Rāmāyaṇa. Beyond that, although prominent in Nepal's political and economic history, the region remains folkloristically understudied, making this book an important presentation of voices from the ground.While studying women's income-generating art in the tourist economy of Janakpur in 1994–1995, Davis ...

  • Mythic Frontiers: Remembering, Forgetting, and Profiting with Cultural
           Heritage Tourism by Daniel R. Maher (review)
    • Abstract: "The primary narrative of the frontier complex minimizes the devastating consequences that imperialism, racism, and sexism have had on social minorities in the past and still today as it elevates and legitimizes the privilege bestowed to white men past and present" (p. 5). This is the core thesis of Daniel R. Maher's Mythic Frontiers. The book examines the purportedly accurate educational claims of frontier heritage tourism sites and uncovers that, rather than historical facts, they promote the ideological components listed in the quote.A case study of Fort Smith, Arkansas (founded in 1817), Maher's book interprets the sites that constitute the fort in view of the mechanisms by which they create selective white ...

  • Performing Nordic Heritage: Everyday Practices and Institutional Culture
           ed. by Peter Aronsson and Lizette Gradén (review)
    • Abstract: Aiming to "scrutinize the creation of Nordic heritage as a performative action" (p. 4) and to examine how "Nordic spaces emerge at the intersection of the global and the local from tensions between the institutional and vernacular" (p. 4), the editors of Performing Nordic Heritage: Everyday Practices and Institutional Culture have gathered a multidisciplinary array of papers. The book forms part of a broader series of edited works, The Nordic Experience, which explores, from various perspectives, "the negotiation of which territories, activities, objects, traits or ideals should qualify as Nordic" (p. ii).The premise of Performing Nordic Heritage is ambitious in seeking to foster an understanding of how images of ...

  • Cinderella across Cultures: New Directions and Interdisciplinary
           Perspectives ed. by Martine Hennard Dutheil de la Rochère, Gillian
           Lathey, and Monika Woźniak (review)
    • Abstract: Cinderella is ubiquitous and seems universal, a fitting synecdoche for the fairy tale itself. That is the role she plays in Cinderella across Cultures, a volume designed to show that every iteration of this "universal" plot is nonetheless the product of "specific historical, geographical, sociocultural, political, economic and material circumstances, as well as discursive, literary, and mediatic ec(h)o-system(s)" (p. 2).The result of an international conference in Rome in 2012, the volume examines a host of global Cinderellas that dialogue with each other and also diverge from each other in fascinating ways. In the spirit of Revisioning Red Riding Hood around the World (Wayne State University Press, 2013), by ... Read More

  • Joking Asides: The Theory, Analysis, and Aesthetics of Humor by Elliott
           Oring (review)
    • Abstract: Folklorists and humor scholars live in separate theoretical worlds, for the most part. Folklorists have remained largely unaware of recent theoretical and experimental research results in humor studies—as if humor theory ended with Freud—while humor scholars, most of whom have disciplinary homes in linguistics, psychology, or literary studies, have neglected folk humor and rarely consider jokes as performances or as historical and aesthetic objects. With Joking Asides, Elliott Oring continues his almost one-man project of bridging this disciplinary gap, a project begun with his earlier volumes Engaging Humor (University of Illinois Press, 2003) and Jokes and Their Relations (University Press of Kentucky, 1992). ...

  • Folksongs of Another America: Field Recordings from the Upper Midwest,
           1937–1946 produced by James P. Leary (review)
    • Abstract: When I was a child, my father occasionally sang fragments of a few Swedish and Danish songs he had heard while growing up during the Depression Era in a small Wisconsin town settled mostly by Scandinavian emigrants. Just a generation removed from his parents' arrival to the Upper Midwest from Sweden and Denmark, my father all his life sought to assimilate into the elite culture associated with the Eastern US megalopolis. Yet, while never conversant in his parents' native languages, he sang fragments of songs from those Old World cultures because they were a vital part of who his parents were and, by extension, who he was.People connected to the Upper Midwest (specifically, the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and ...

  • Lead Belly: The Smithsonian Folkways Collection produced by Jeff Place and
           Robert Santelli (review)
    • Abstract: It is hard to imagine a folk singer more significant to the canon of Americana than Huddie "Lead Belly" Ledbetter. He either wrote or refashioned such classics as "Goodnight Irene," "The Bourgeois Blues," "Midnight Special," "Pick a Bale of Cotton," and "Rock Island Line," then offered them and dozens of other songs to the nation beginning in the 1930s through his own recordings and others' publication of this material. This music has reverberated through the decades, being picked up again and again by such luminaries as Pete Seeger, Gene Autry, Nat King Cole, Johnny Cash, Odetta, Bob Dylan, Michelle Shocked, Kurt Cobain, Jack White, and Jay Farrar, who recast these songs in their own distinctive idioms and then ...

  • Field Recorders Collective
    • Abstract: A note on each of these Field Recorders Collective (FRC) releases explains the nonprofit's mission: "Your purchase of these recordings will give financial support to a continuation of this series and provide funds to the immediate families of the musician. . . . These recordings aim to honor the wishes of older musicians to share their tunes and styles with younger musicians, and keep traditional music alive and flourishing." Growing out of old-time banjo player and avid field recorder Ray Alden's relationships with an older generation of musicians, the FRC attempts to honor those relationships. Although Alden died in 2009, the organization continues to bring rare music into circulation in responsible ways that ... Read More
