Memorial University will hear from some of its own during the next installment of the Music, Media and Culture Lecture Series which is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 20.
            A panel discussion, titled Fieldwork Ethics in Ethnomusicology and Folklore, will feature four Memorial students:
           Graham Blair is a PhD candidate in Ethnomusicology whose research concerns the grassroots aspects of bluegrass music in Canada, an interest which developed out of his involvement with the West Coast bluegrass scene.

           Andrea Kitta is a PhD candidate in Folklore and lecturer in the Department of Pediatrics whose research interests include medical distrust and the anti-vaccination movement. 
           Contessa Small, a PhD candidate in Folklore, studies children’s folklore and popular culture, and is currently working on literary fandom surrounding the Harry Potter phenomenon. 
The next installment of the series takes place in the Music, Media and Place Gallery in the Arts and Culture Centre, which is located in the northeast corner of the building. It begins at 7:30 p.m.
The event is open to the public and is free of charge.
Parking is available in the Arts and Culture Parking Lot.
