Subject: American Folkife Center Hires Writer-Editor


Dear Board and Colleagues:

I am very pleased to announce that the American Folklife Center (AFC) has
hired Dr. Stephen D. Winick in the position of Writer-Editor, and he will be
joining the staff on March 1st.

Stephen Winick is a folklorist, writer and editor with a longtime interest
in folk traditions.  He pursued his undergraduate studies at Columbia
University (Magna Cum Laude, 1990) and earned his graduate degrees from the
Department of Folklore and Folklife at the University of Pennsylvania (MA,
1992, and Ph.D., 1998).  Since 1999, Stephen has been the director of the
Delaware Valley Folklife Center, a program of the Walt Whitman Arts Center
in Camden, New Jersey, and one of six regional folklife centers for the
state of New Jersey.  In this position, Stephen has produced ten exhibits on
the history and folklife of his region, including a popular exhibition on
the regions favorite legend, the Jersey Devil.  His exhibit on the Dreamland
Café in Lawnside, NJ, a popular destination for African-American musicians
from the 1930s to the 1980s, travels to the New Jersey Historical Society in
Newark for six months starting in February 2005.  In addition, Stephen has
taught folklore courses at the University of Pennsylvania and appears as a
monthly guest on the popular radio program Kids' Corner, which airs in
Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Baltimore.

Stephen has also been a professional writer and editor since 1989,
specializing in folklore and folk music.  He is currently a contributing
editor at Dirty Linen, the Magazine of Folk and World Music, and has also
written for Sing Out!, Philadelphia City Paper, and numerous other
publications.  He has written sleeve notes for CDs on the Green Linnet and
One Little Indian labels; concert notes for world music venues such as
Philadelphia's International House and the South Jersey Performing Arts
Center; and biographies and capsule reviews for music guides such as Music
Hound and the All Music Guide.  In the academic world, his writing has
appeared in the Journal of American Folklore, Western Folklore, Proverbium,
and other journals, as well as several essay collections and encyclopedias.
His essay on the British broadside ballad Reynardine is the cover article in
the most recent issue of the British academic journal Folklore.  In
addition, Stephen Winick was both an editor of and a contributor to the book
What Goes Around Comes Around, a volume of essays on proverb scholarship,
which was published in October 2004.

We at the AFC look forward to working with Stephen on our publications
program and new online publishing endeavors.
