Abstract

This article examines a problem in the design of folklore websites: in what ways can technology be used to build into the documentation process itself an ethnographic guide to the materials that incorporates the folkgroup's own understanding of those materials, and how they can be best presented to the public? In examining this problem, the article focuses on the potential of digital media for addressing two concerns of contemporary folkloristics—reflexivity and ethnographic storytelling.
