Folklife Documentary Video Program

Over the past fifteen years, the Folklife Resource Center has been actively involved in documenting folk culture through video. Footage is generated by students, contract fieldworkers, and professional videographers. An ongoing program, topics of research include traditional foodways, the environmental landscape of the Lowcountry, traditional music, and general folklife. Material associated with this program is not selected for artistic merit alone, but for the documentary value of the subject matter.
