Georges Arsenault and John Cousins honoured

John CousinsFolklore Studies Association of Canada/L’Association canadienne d’ethnologie et de folklore held its annual meeting at UPEI in collaboration with the Institute of Island Studies in May.

At the AGM the executive of FSAC/ACEF honoured Georges Arsenault and John Cousins, two of PEI’s most esteemed folklorists, with the association’s Marius Barbeau Medal. The medal is given in recognition of remarkable individual contributions to folklore and ethnology through teaching, research, and communication―activities in which both Arsenault and Cousins have excelled.

As Dr. Edward MacDonald, chair of UPEI’s Department of History notes, “In the year when the Folklore Studies Association of Canada is meeting on PEI, it seems entirely appropriate to recognize two giants of Prince Edward Island folklore for their career contributions to the collection, study, dissemination, and popularization of folklore within this province and beyond: Georges Arsenault and John Cousins.

Both Georges and John were born into the communities they have studied, giving them the unique perspective that comes from being at the same time both outsiders and insiders in their research. Both live a conviction that scholarship has a responsibility to speak to the general populace, a duty to help us all better understand the culture that forms our mental and physical landscapes.”
