A New Book in the FF Communications Series

The Finnish Academy of Science and Letters in the Folklore Fellows' Communications series has released its book No. 315, "Visions and Traditions. Knowledge Production and Tradition Archives". This volume contains 18 scholarly articles that in various ways discuss the political, methodological and ethical aspects of how tradition archives have been – and are – involved in the production of knowledge (see the contents). The book was prepared by international editorial team: Lauri Harvilahti (Finland), Audun Kjus (Norway), Clíona O'Carroll (Ireland), Susanne Österlund-Pötzsch (Finland), Fredrik Skott (Sweden) and Rita Treija (Latvia).

Among the authors, there is Sanita Reinsone, leading researcher of the Archives of Latvian Folklore, Institute of Literature, Folklore and Art of the University of Latvia.

Her article "Participatory practices and tradition archives" seeks to analyse the crowdsourcing phenomenon within the context of folklore archives.

The publication was financed by the Network of Nordic and Baltic Tradition Archives, the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture, and the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Latvia (basic budget sub-programme 05.04.00 "Krišjānis Barons' Cabinet of Folksongs").
