Our Current Work on Choreometrics
The Alan Lomax Collection is “the premiere collection” at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, according to Dr. Betsy Peterson. The Choreometrics section of the collection contains 76 boxes (38 linear feet) with approximately 3,300 additional film elements from approximately 800 cultures.
- What is the potential value of the film clips to scholars and students if digital access were granted to the rich information contained within the collection?
- Which organizations and institutions already have—or could have—a stake in the future of this project?
- What kind of digital platform and presence should the potential Choreometrics site possess?
