Nermin Peimanovic showing off his son’s Bosnian fez along with socks that were knitted for him by his Grandmother. We’re happy to say these items will be featured in the upcoming exhibit, A Culture Carried: Bosnians in Bowling Green. This exhibit will open this fall at the Kentucky Museum and is funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

From the archives: Senida Husic and her family cooking up a pot of kupus in their Bowling Green, KY home. Husic described: “The part of [Bosnia] where my family is from, the stew is called ‘kupus’ which is essentially just ‘cabbage’. There are different variations of how it’s made, family to family, but mostly it’s referred to as kupus.”

We were in Miami, FL last week for the annual meeting of the American Folklore Society where we led a discussion about our ongoing project with the Bosnian community in Bowling Green. KFP staff Brent Björkman and Virginia Siegel along with WKU Folk Studies faculty Ann Ferrell and Kate Horigan represented the team in Miami. Here, Ferrell, Horigan, and Siegel discuss fieldwork plans in one of the initial project meetings. #kyfolklife #kentucky #bowlinggreen #bosnia #afsam16 from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2eChzai
