About this Item
- Theory and Practice of Folklore in Cajun & Creole Louisiana
- Barry Jean Ancelet discusses his fieldwork and current research, addressing the relationship between the theory and practice of folklore, between what folklorists think and how they convey the results of that thought to diverse audiences, including academic colleagues, cultural specialists and the general public. Although some folklorists have seen a dichotomy between thought and action, Ancelet has always seen them as inextricably integrated. He says that while he is "more interested in discussing practice than theory, both are always in play."
