Barbara Myerhoff's groundbreaking work in reflexivity and narrative ethnography broke with tradition by focusing not on the raw ethnographic data, but on her interactions with those she studied. Myerhoff's unfinished projects, including her final talks on storytelling, ritual and the ""culture of aging the Yiddishkeit,"" offer a magisterial summary of her life's work. Together these texts provide a unique document, of use to those interested in anthropology, folklore, ethnography, human gerontology, Jewish studies, women's studies, storytelling and performance studies.
