      NOTE:

      Materials in brackets are my additions. Items are listed more or less in reverse chronological order within each section. All links are presumably working at the time I send this email. Many of the articles listed are printed in other Alabama newspapers; in general, I do not attempt to list all appearances of an article. Some dates given are those when the item was posted to the newspaper or magazine web site. Some items are listed without links because I either could not find online versions or could not find a free one.

      ***Feel free to forward this email as desired.***

      WARNING: Many articles on newspaper and magazine web sites and blogs are accompanied by nasty, anonymous comments about individuals and subjects in or sometimes unrelated to the posted articles. Some articles in these listings will unfortunately include such commentary.

      AND NOW THE NEWS...

      Additional articles can often be found at Google, Topix or Yahoo news sites:

      http://news.google.com/
      http://www.topix.net/
      http://news.yahoo.com/

      Please note that many articles continue beyond the single web page I have linked here. Web sites related to some articles often appear in the "Bonus Material" section.

      **2010 Folklorists in the South & Mid Atlantic Retreat is just two weeks away--May 28, 2010! (Pending space availability, you may be able to register after May 28 but with an additional late charge.) The Retreat will be held June 19-21 at the Aqueduct Conference Center in beautiful Chapel Hill, NC. Our theme, Folk Verite: Folklife in Film & Video, will explore the use of film and video as documentation and
      storytelling. The weekend includes field trips to the Bynum General Store, the Southern Folklife Collection at UNC-Chapel Hill, and Duke University's Center for Documentary Studies. We'll have professional development sessions by Tom Davenport, founder and director of FolkStreams.net, the online resource for streaming ethnographic films; technical advice from Guha Shankar, Folklife Specialist at the American Folklife Center, focusing on historical motion picture collections and technical challenges in AV digital preservation and access; and Tomas Valladares, Production Coordinator, ChinaVine.org, presenting on ChinaVine's use of film and media, and the challenges posed with creating an interactive website. You needn't be living in the South or the mid-Atlantic to join us, so come one, come all! Please see the revised Schedule at a Glance available at http://tinyurl.com/32y535t We have special rates for one-day visitors and commuters, too!
