Fellowships and Awards from the American Folklife Center

     The American Folklife Center (AFC) at the Library of
Congress has made three awards from its Parsons Fund for
Ethnography and one award from its Blanton Owen Fund for
Fieldwork. In addition, the AFC has named two Library of
Congress Junior Fellows for the summer of 2001. The Owen
Fund is awarded for the first time.

     Barrett Golding has been awarded $1,000 from the
Parsons Fund to support the creation of two public radio
programs, one for National Public Radio and one for Florida
stations.  The programs will interweave the archival music
and stories from the AFC's collection "Florida Folklife from
the WPA," along with an interview with Stetson Kennedy, head
of the WPA Florida project.  Barrett Golding is a veteran
documentarian and radio producer who lives in Montana.

     Mark Jackson has been awarded $400 from the Parsons
Fund to support the creation and publication of a CD based
on the music and spoken words of John Handcox, a
sharecropper and member of the Arkansas-based Southern
Tenant Farmers Union in the 1930s. Handcox was recorded at
the Library of Congress in 1937.  Mark Jackson is a Ph.D.
candidate at Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge.

     Nancy-Jean Seigel has been awarded $400 from the
Parsons Fund to support her work researching, organizing,
and adding to the files of  the Helen Hartness Flanders
Ballad Collection in the Archive of Folk Culture. Ms. Seigel
is working on a book on Helen Hartness Flanders, who is her
grandmother.

     Professor Yolanda Hood, University of North Carolina,
Ashville, has been awarded $1,000 from the Blanton Owen Fund
to support her project "Only a Child Chews Her Fufu:
Constructing, Maintaining, and Negotiating Identities in
U.S. Diasporic Nigerian Communities." This is the first
award from the Blanton Owen Fund for Fieldwork. Dr. Hood
will use the money to support her field trips to Atlanta,
Georgia, to interview members of the Nigerian community
located there.

     The Library of Congress Junior Fellows Program was
established a number of years ago to help the Library
inventory, describe, and make available unexplored
materials; give selected fellows an opportunity to work with
the Library's unique collections; and introduce fellows to
the career opportunities at the Library of Congress. Junior
Fellows candidates must be enrolled in or just completing
academic programs at the undergraduate or graduate level.

     The two Junior Fellows selected this year to work at
the AFC are T. Chris Aplin, a master's candidate in
ethnomusicology at the University of Oklahoma, and John
Vallier, a Ph.D. candidate in ethnomusicology at the
University of California, Los Angeles.
