Synopsis

Through their search to achieve a sense of academic identity the authors in this volume have brought us new textures and ideas from their research to help us all in our creation and location of spaces we can claim as our own. Working within the traditions of academic scholarship, we are reformulating what we see and presenting it in a previously unexplored perspective of connections and possibilities. Through our presentation of this view, we are asserting a new location for the academic identity negotiation that will challenge and reinforce our positioning within scholarly endeavors. The articles contained in these pages are themselves markers of identity produced within and created to define the academic culture. From this base of academic tradition, the essays contained in this volume share grounding in the exploration of culturally produced markers of identity pulling from various academic disciplines. Through the examination of the performance of identity markers, each scholar develops and reveals connections that we may utilize in our ever-expanding perspective of scholarly subjects and approaches.

Rhonda Dass is a PhD candidate at Indiana University-Bloomington in Folklore and American Studies with a minor in Anthropology. Through the visual arts she is exploring how globalization, tourism, and American culture affect the racial, ethnic, and gender constructs of folk group communities. Adam Zolkover A writer, scholar, and claimant of the name "folklorist," Adam is interested in interdisciplinary approaches to disciplinary history and the mechanics of inequality in life, art, and the interstitial processes in between. Hopefully he will one day add fiction, graphic fiction, and a doctoral degree to the mix. Anthony Guest-Scott is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology at Indiana University, a guitar instructor, and the co-founder, together with Moroccan percussionist Anass Sentissi, of the Moroccan Andalusian Classical Music Orchestra of Bloomington. His research interests include ethnographic work in music pedagogical contexts more generally, the organization and learning of musical experience, the anthropology of leisure-based contexts for expressive encounters with cultural "others" (tourism, music festivals, music camps, and the like), popular music, and musics of North Africa and the Middle East. J. Meryl Krieger is a Ph.D. Candidate in Folklore & Ethnomusicology at Indiana University Bloomington. Her dissertation is on women songwriters and American recording studios, and her current research focuses online and other mediated music communities.
