September 11, 2001, documentary project( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The September 11, 2001, Documentary Project captures the heartfelt reactions, eyewitness accounts, and diverse opinions of Americans and others in the months that followed the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93. Patriotism and unity mixed with sadness, anger, and insecurity are common themes expressed in the sound and video recordings, written narratives, poetry, photographs, and drawings that comprise this online presentation. The day after the attacks, the American Folklife Center called upon the nation's folklorists and ethnographers to collect, record, and document America's reaction. A sampling of the material collected through this effort was used to create the September 11, 2001, Documentary Project. This collection captures the voices of a diverse ethnic, socioeconomic, and political cross-section of America during trying times and serves as a historical and cultural resource for future generations

Ethnic folklife dissertations from the United States and Canada, 1960-1980 : a selected annotated bibliography by Catherine Hiebert Kerst( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This annotated bibliography lists over 220 multi-disciplinary Ph. D. dissertations written between 1960 and 1980 on the subject of indigenous and immigrant ethnic folklife in the United States and Canada. Only dissertations providing substantial attention to traditional forms of ethnic folk culture in context were considered. The concept of "folklife" governing the selection process was guided by the definition used in the American Folklife Preservation Act (P.L. 94-201) which states that folklife is "the traditional expressive culture shared within the various groups ... familial, ethnic, occupational, religious, regional; expressive culture includes a wide range of creative and symbolic forms such as custom, belief, technical skill, language, literature, art, architecture, music, play, dance, drama, ritual, pageantry, handicraft; these expressions are mainly learned orally, by imitation, or in performance, and are generally maintained without benefit of formal instruction or institutional direction." Dissertations are organized alphabetically by the author's last name. Each entry includes author's name, complete dissertation title, name of university granting the Ph. D., academic department/field for which the dissertaion was written, year the degree was granted, pagination, order number from University Microfilms International, abstract citation, bibliographic reference to published edition (when applicable), and condensed version of author's abstract.

Folklife and the Federal Government : a guide to activities, resources, funds, and services by Linda Coe( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The guide describes fifty-four diverse federal programs and activities which are potential sources of financial and other assistance to those interested in various aspects of folklife. Potential users are folk artists; folklorists; researchers in linguistics, anthropology, and ethnology; members of ethnic or regional groups involved in presenting or preserving aspects of their cultural heritage; or American people generally. The efforts of John Wesley Powell, John Collier, Holger Cahill, the Archive of American Folk Song, the Bureau of American Ethnology, and other people and institutions are noted in a short introductory section describing 200 years of contradictory federal response to American folklife, culminating in the 1976 American Folklife Preservation Act. The programs described are organized by sponsoring federal agency, and are numbered sequentially for indexing purposes. The one-to-two page descriptions note what assistance is available, for whom it is intended, and whom to contact for more information. Examples are given of assistance previously granted under some programs. There is a briefly annotated bibliography of six publications dating from 1975 which contain detailed information of the federal government and its programs. (Sb)
