As many of you by now have figured out I have relocated to Chennai, India. I am working in the American International School here! In the past week we (my husband and I) attended a fabulous presentation for the Madras Day titled the Sea Story, "A special play/performance by the members of Nochikuppam seafishing community, facilitated by the World Storytelling Institute." It was hosted by Eric Miller, Director of the World Storytelling Institute (Chennai). He was nice enough to share a fabulous article he wrote for the education newsletter of the American Folklore Society. This article has great tips for how to conduct interviews via videoconferencing - take a read! http://www.afsnet.org/sections/education/Spring2008/Feature.html
And thanks again to Eric for sharing!
