Folklorists all too frequently must explain our work to others. This forum explores successful approaches that folklorists can employ to engage non-folklorists with our discipline. Models include professional development examples from K-16, museum, and community educators to traditional artists here and abroad. Learners of all ages in diverse settings find such methods engaging and meaningful. Expect an interactive dialogue.
