Description
Four audio cassettes. Meeting between project participants and the project's advisory committee to review and revise the project's publication: Documenting Maritime Folklife: An Introductory Guide. In addition to a discussion of the Florida Maritime Project, the recordings provide insight into disciplinary debates over the validity of folklife. Includes discussion of amateur versus professional folklorists/researchers, the use of oral history, the project's aims and goals, the philosophy and politics behind folklife, and the conflicts between history, anthropology, and folklife. Participants include maritime historian, Fleetwood, historians Hickerson and Morris, archaeologist Miller, anthropologists Parades, Wickman, and Stewart, biologist Scott, folklorists Gilmore, Johnson, Taylor, Michael, and Loomis. An online copy of the publication can be found at: http://www.loc.gov/folklife/maritime/ Between 1986 and 1987, a partnership between the Florida Folklife Program and the American Folk Center created the Maritime Heritage Survey Project. Focusing on the Gulf and Atlantic fishing cultures, and utilizing photographs, slides, oral histories, and on-site interviews, the survey climaxed with a demonstration area at the 1987 Florida Folk Festival. Also available on reel to reel (reels 6-7). The three main researchers were Nancy Nusz, Merri Belland, and project director David Taylor. Additional information on the project can be found in Taylor's project files in S 1716.
