Folklife and Museums now available

Feb 8, 2017

Lisa Rathje and Paddy Bowman wrote a chapter on Folklore and Museum Education published in Folklife and Museums: Twenty-First Century Perspectives, a brand new collection of “cutting-edge essays that combine theoretical insights, practical applications, topical case studies (focusing on particular subject matter areas and specific cultural groups), accompanied by up-to-date “resources” and “suggested readings” sections.” Edited by Patricia Hall, Charlie Seemann, and C. Kurt Dewhurst, and published by Rowman and Littlefield, this text replaces the 1987 book with updates to the still-relevant and classic essays and articles from the earlier text and features new pioneering pieces by some of today’s most outstanding scholars and practitioners, to provide a more current overview of the field and addressing contemporary issues.
