About this Item
- Women Documenting the World (Afternoon Session)
- Afternoon session of a day-long symposium that highlighted, explored and celebrated the contributions of women as ethnographic fieldworkers and scholars. The event called attention to the role of women in establishing many of the foundational collections that enrich the American Folklife Center archives within the Library of Congress, as well as other ethnographic archives throughout the world. It featured presentations by contemporary researchers who are currently engaged in both national and international fieldwork and included brief presentations by American Folklife Center staff about important fieldwork collections in the Center's archives that were created by women and are too often overlooked.
