Event Details

The David Buchan Lecture was launched in 2015 to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the founding of the Elphinstone Institute. The lecture is in memory of the influential ballad and contemporary legend scholar who was also the Institute's first appointed director. This annual event places Ethnology and Folklore firmly in the university calendar and appeals to a wide audience across the university as well as to the general public.

The 2016 David Buchan Lecture will be given by Professor Valdimar Tr. Hafstein, President of the Société Internationale d'Ethnologie et de Folklore (SIEF), and Senior Lecturer of Folklore and Ethnology, University of Iceland. Hafstein will offer a talk on 'Copyrighting Tradition in the Internet Age: Creativity, Authorship, and Folklore Sector'.
