美国民俗学会开展“Why I'm a Folklorist”记录活动
Why I'm a Folklorist（我为什么是一名民俗学者）是AFS（美国民俗学会）会长凯特纳发起的一个拍摄项目。在2016年AFS理事会议晚宴上，凯突发奇想拿出手机，开始问旁边的人：你为什么是一名民俗学者？用两分钟时间告诉我。AFS随后为这一项目又进行了多次正式拍摄，共计录制了60多场短时访谈。

"Why I'm a Folklorist"is a film project initiated by AFS President Kay Turner.In a spontaneous moment at an AFS board meeting dinner in 2016,Kay took out her iPhone and began asking those seated nearby"Why are you a folklorist?You've got two minutes to tell me."More formal filming events followed,resulting in more than sixty short interviews being filmed for the project.

Colleagues from across our discipline–grad students,newly minted and long-tenured professors,public folklorists,adjuncts and activists–have participated.Kay says,"The eloquence,emotion,and sheer variety of claims made is outstanding.None of the interviews lasts more than a few minutes,but in those brief moments with folklorists,the viewer gains a real sense of why people join our field.In part,this project fulfills the Society's request and the Board's goal to bring folklore to a wider world."
