In this project, Steven Salaita, a budding poet, interviewed two other Appalachian poets, Rita Sizemore Riddle, and Jim Minick, both of Radford University. Mr. Salaita decided to focus on religion and spirituality in Appalachian poetry, and found Ms. Riddle to be personally religious but one who does not much about spirituality in her work, while Mr. Minick is not personally religious but writes extensively about spirituality in his work. This is among projects created by students enrolled in English 446 (initially English 452), “Appalachian Folklore,” 1981-2019, and in graduate level counterparts English 548 and 648 “Appalachian Folk Culture(s)” offered 17 fall semesters between 1987 and 2009. Minimally contain collector’s introduction and analysis, transcribed informant interviews, and excerpted and labeled examples of oral, customary, and/or material folklore/folklife collected primarily within the Appalachian region. Most include also tables of contents, informant information, indexes (outlines) of interviews, photographs, miscellaneous paper items, and indexes of informants, genres, and geographic locations. Accompanying audio recordings (several minutes to 2+ hours). Transferred to McConnell Library Archives & Special Collections from Appalachian Regional and Rural Studies Center, Fall 2013.
