Abstract/ Summary

As the incoming director of the Folklife Center, I [James Moreira] have been asked to write a short piece to introduce myself to the members and supporters. It seems, after all, the traditional thing to do in such circumstances.

Originally from Nova Scotia, I have spent much of the past twenty years living in Newfoundland, most recently on the stunningly beautiful west coast where I was teaching at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College. I earned a masters and Ph.D. at the Department of Folklore at Memorial University in St. John's.
