About this Item
- The Person Behind the Job: The Occupational Folklife Project (Online Office Hours)
- Join the staff of the Library's American Folklife Center (AFC) to explore the online resource, the Occupational Folklife Project. Over the past decade, folklorists and oral historians throughout America have been working closely with the AFC to document more than a thousand contemporary workers talking about their jobs. Electricians, circus performers, health care providers, and gold miners are among those who explain how they learned their trades, what they do at work, and what they like and don't like about their jobs. We'll demonstrate how you can explore these engaging interviews, and share strategies for how you might use them with your students.
