Dr. Jennifer Michael, Program Coordinator (1999-2003)

Jenny Michael joined the Academy of Science's Traditional Arts Program in May of 1999.She grew up in the Bay Area, where she completed undergraduate work at Stanford and a master's degree in Folklore at the University of California at Berkeley.Her studies then took her to Philadelphia, where she earned a doctorate in Folklore & Folklife from the University of Pennsylvania.After holding teaching positions at Penn and Indiana University, Jenny returned to the Bay Area, where she is currently a lecturer in the American Studies Program at U.C. Berkeley.
jm2, width=Jenny's particular interests lie in the adornment, manipulation, and transformation of the body, in women's cultural expression and material culture, especially dress and foodways.Much of her research has focused on ethnic communities in the United States and abroad, including dissertation fieldwork on the women's costume tradition in Arles, France, several years working in urban neighborhoods as a staff folklorist for the Philadelphia Folklore Project, and an oral history study of the tiny African American town of Nicodemus, Kansas --now a National Historic Site--conducted for the National Park Service.A grant from the Louisville Institute allowed Jenny to continue this last project during the summer of 2000 with a study of the local Baptist church.
In 2003, Jenny co-founded "Seeing with New Eyes" to provide resources to help creative people develop sustainable projects.She currently consults on local arts and culture, offers workshops in grant-writing, ethnographic methods, and curriculum development.In addition, she is involved in projects in web design, documentary photography and video.
