Prolific Possibilities: What Folklorists Do
From Amanda Lueck
Dr. Tim Lloyd introduces his recent publication “What Folklorists Do: Professional Possibilities in Folklore Studies,” an edited volume with contributions from over six dozen folklorists discussing what it is that they do in their lives and careers. Dr. Lloyd discusses hot the core ideas within the field of folkloristics and how the book shows the range of work that are informed by these core concepts. He shares where the inspiration to create “What Folklorists Do” came from and how it enhances this inspiration with a current look on the state and prospects of the field. Although “What Folklorists Do” is organized into four categories: “Researching and Teaching,” “Leading and Managing,” “Communicating and Curating,” and “Advocating and Partnering,” Dr. Lloyd encourages readers and folklorists to consider the natural overlap and partnership of these within Folklore Studies.
