Description

Jane C. Goodale was an American anthropologist and photographer who conducted ethnographic research on Kaulong-speaking people of New Britain Island in Papua New Guinea. Goodale studied Kaulong and Tok Pisin languages, the nature of gender differences and gender relations, attitudes towards sexuality and marriage, the ritual of death, and the song performances accompanying rituals of Kaulong speaking communities. The recordings document the details of the social life, customs, and song performances of the Kaulong recorded by Goodale in Umbi and Angelek during her three visits to New Britain Island in 1962-1964, 1967-1968, and 1974.

The sound recordings were digitized through support by a Recordings at Risk grant from the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR). The grant program is made possible by funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Sound recordings are available upon request and registration.
