Cultural Transmission as Translation,

      PRESS RELEASE

      VOICE/OVER
      Cultural Transmission as Translation, Exchange, and Reproduction

      The Center for Folklore and Ethnography at the University of Pennsylvania and the Center for Folklore Studies at the Ohio State University announce plans for a symposium, Voice/Over: Cultural Transmission as Translation, Exchange, and Reproduction, to be held on the Penn campus, March 22-23, 2002. Voice/Over, the third in a series of symposia sponsored by the Center for Folklore and Ethnography, will honor Roger D. Abrahams, the CFE's first director, on the occasion of his semi-retirement from teaching. In recognition of Dr. Abrahams' wide-ranging and vital contributions to the theory and practice of folklore since the 1960s, participants from the first two meetings will launch discussion of the field's core project on the Center's website (www.sas.upenn.edu/folklore) in mid-February. Visitors to the website are encouraged to post responses.

      The live symposium will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, March 22 in the McNeill Center and will continue on Saturday, March 23 in the Terrace Room in Logan Hall (249 So. 36th Street). The conference is free and open to students, faculty, staff, and professional colleagues. For further information, visit the Center for Folklore and Ethnography website, or contact Joyce Roselle (jroselle@sas.upenn.edu) at 215-898-8400.
