With best wishes in the name of the board,
The American Folklore Society has announced the award of 2018 Brenda McCallum Prize which seeks to promote works of excellence and innovation that further the cause of preservation, organization, curation, or enhanced public access and use related to folklife archival collections.
The winner of the Brenda McCallum Prize in 2018 is the collective work "Visions and Traditions. Knowledge Production and Tradition Archives" edited by the Network's members Lauri Harvilahti, Audun Kjus, Clíona O'Carrol, Suzanne Österlund-Pötzsch, Fredrik Skott, and Rita Treija.
We congratulate the authors and editors on a work the Committee agreed was forward-looking, cutting edge, and tightly focused on central matters of folklore and folklife archiving, history, theory, and practice. Committee members also saw the work as propelling folklore archives into the modern era of disciplinary shifts by claiming a firm foothold in academic conversations accessible to archivists, folklorists, and folklore-archivists. It also offered numerous interesting case study examples for contemplation. – American Folklore Society / Archives & Libraries Section Prize Committee
