Spanish Folklife and Fieldwork Online

Share this post:

One of these things is not like the others! Folklife and Fieldwork now comes in two languages. Download both at this link!

A few weeks ago we announced in Folklife Today that our fieldwork guide, Folklife and Fieldwork, was available in a new Spanish-language edition. At that time, I mentioned that the next step would be to place a pdf online, and we’re glad to say it’s available!  You can download both English and Spanish versions here.

Once again, on behalf of the AFC team, which includes John Fenn, the head of our Research and Programs section; Betsy Peterson, our director; contributors Nancy Groce, Maggie Kruesi, and Guha Shankar; me, as co-author and editor of the book; and especially my late co-author, Peter Bartis, we want to thank principal translator Juan Manuel Pérez of the Library of Congress Hispanic Division, Carlos J. Olave and the rest of the Hispanic Division staff, Olivia Cadaval of the Smithsonian’s  Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, and everyone else who helped make this real.  We also want to thank AFC’s Stephanie Hall and the Library’s QA & Testing Section for their work in preparing an accessible pdf.

As always, you can read about the history of Folklife and Fieldwork at this blog post, and you can get free paper copies of either Folklife and Fieldwork or La tradición popular y la investigación de campo, just by writing to us at [email protected] and requesting them!
