|Abstract||Photographs, color slides, audio and video recordings, and documentary project files comprise the bulk of the Lau and Chatterly collection. Documentarian Barbara A. Lau (1958-) and photographer Cedric Chatterly (1956-) collaborated during the 1990s and early 2000s on exhibits, workshops, and publications about communities of Cambodian and Montagnard Dega refugees and immigrants in Greensboro, N.C. Audio and video recordings contain oral history interviews, Buddhist sermons and chanting, Khmer music and dance, and traditional ceremonies and celebrations including the Cambodian new year. Photographic materials depict members of the Greensboro communities, the Buddhist temples, and events such as the Khmer Traditional Dance and Music Workshop. Projects represented in the collection include "From Cambodia to Greensboro: Tracing the Journeys of New North Carolinians," "The Original Children of Dega: Legends of the Montagnard-Dega People Remembered by the Refugee Communities of North Carolina," and "The Third Boat: Negotiating Cambodian Identity in North Carolina." Project files contain proposals, grant applications, budgets, research materials, field work, and transcriptions of oral history interviews. Acquired as part of the Southern Folklife Collection.|
