SIEF (Société Internationale d´Ethnologie et de Folklore / International Society for Ethnology and Folklore) joins #stayhome campaign by launching a new SIEF video series – Ethnological Matterings. On the wings of the successful Ethnological Sensations series, Áslaug Einarsdóttir, SIEF's courtly filmmaker, has produced films with a slightly different scope. This time we will focus on ways in which ethnological and folklorist approaches and skills can be applied in different fields outside the academia in which our disciplines come to "matter”. One film will be released each month until the next SIEF congress in Helsinki in June 2021.

The first video features Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett. In her reflections on how she applied her folklorist training in her work on the Polin Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw, Barbara points to the creativity, adjustability and usefulness of E&F knowledge in various spheres.
