Date
1982-08-25
Description

One audio cassette. Side A, Interview of Dave Closson: The hard copy transcript and cassette recording of this interview only feature Closson's responses. They do not include the interviewer's questions. Closson discusses what constitutes tradition (traditionality); defines the term "folk;" and talks about studying minority groups, folklorists' sense of objectivity, the geographical scope of the Florida Folklife Program, producing folk studies for both scholars and the public, folk differences in Florida, and the Florida Folk Festival.

Loomis discusses a fur and hide trading company in western Florida; the Great Gulf Coast Arts Festival; uses for Florida folklife studies; stereotypes about folk culture (which many automatically consider as being rural, regressive, and Appalachian or of the deep South); cultural group identities; defining and preserving folklore; tradition bearers; and valuing forms of informal education.
