2015 marks the centennial of the birth of Alan Lomax, America's foremost folklorist of the 20th century. This panel will survey his work documenting, preserving, and promoting traditional music and culture from 1933 to 1991, both in America and around the world; explore the technological, media, cultural, and social influences of that work; and discuss contemporary - and future - outlets and applications, and the ongoing importance, of Alan Lomax's collections.
