Fall 2001 — The Center
for Folklore and Ethnography Names Dr. Mary Hufford as New Director
Hufford joins the University of Pennsylvania as Director of the
Center for Folklore and Ethnography. She has published widely
on folklore, cultural policy and ecological crisis, including
an edited volume, Conserving Culture: A New Discourse on Heritage.
Her regional studies in central Appalachia and in southern New
Jersey (Chaseworld: Foxhunting and Storytelling in New Jersey's
Pine Barrens) reflect her broader interest in discourses on nature,
environment, and the body, and the production of social imaginaries.
Mary has taught Folklore and History, Public Culture, Appalachian
Folklore and the Politics of Culture, and Environmental Imaginaries,
and looks forward to offering a variety of courses, including
Bodylore, Narrative, Ways of Speaking, and Fieldwork
Theory/Practicum. This Spring, Mary will offer two graduate
seminars, Topics in Folklore:
Bodylore and Critical Regionalism.
Her office is located in Logan Hall, room 313.
