Rewriting America: Reconsidering the Federal Writers’ Project 80 Years Later

June 16


The American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress host a one-day symposium bringing together the contemporary perspectives of public scholars, documentary producers and curators on the legacy of the Federal Writers’ Project (FWP [1935-39]). The free, public event focuses attention on the ways in which the Library’s extraordinary archival collection of FWP materials continues to inform and inspire public outreach and interdisciplinary scholarship in fields ranging from public and oral history to journalism to ethnic studies and folklore.

Focused presentations by a wide array of participants have the broader aim of considering how the stories of Americans are central to our diverse national identity and to preserving our democracy. Watch video of the panel, Archival Resources in Creative Culture and Media:
