Thursday, March 19th
10:30am - 12:30pm

**POSTPONED** Collins-Bramham Public Folklore Workshop with Dr. Jon Kay of Traditional Arts Indiana

  • Location: Morgan Room
  • Time: 10:30am - 12:30pm

This event has been postponed, as WKU has activated contingency plans to address the rapidly-evolving COVID-19 situation. Please refer to wku.edu/covid19 for more information.

Thursday's session will be an introductory session and pizza lunch with students and faculty. 

Folk Studies graduate students will have multiple opportunities over this 2-day visit to interact with and learn from Dr. Jon Kay. Jon Kay is an alum of our Folk Studies MA program, and he currently directs Traditional Arts Indiana at Indiana University, where he also serves as a Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology. He is the author of Folk Art and Aging: Life-Story Objects and Their Makers and the edited volume The Expressive Lives of Elders: Folklore, Art, and Aging. Kay also creates exhibitions, public programs, and documentaries about the traditional arts in Indiana.

This event is supported each year by funding from the Bramham/Collins Visual and Performing Guest Artist Endowment. The Folk Studies program appreciates the generous support of Drs. Bramham and Collins, which makes it possible to bring an esteemed public folklorist to campus each year to benefit graduate students.
