Korean/Korean American Online Folklore Archive

Website: http://kfl.humnet.ucla.edu/map Principal Investigator(s): Prof. Tim Tangherlini, Scandinavian

The goal of the current project is to develop a more sophisticated search and display interface, that will allow the Korean/Korean American Online Folklore Archive to move from being mainly an instructional tool for students in Professor Tangherlini’s two Korean folklore/ethnography classes, to being a key resource for students not only in these classes, but any class that engages the traditions of individuals of diverse ethnic heritage across Southern California. All of the data in the online folklore archive is wedded to significant meta-data describing the collectors, the consultants/informants, the collection contexts and the field data itself.
