Biographical/Historical note

Elayne Leslie Zorn was born on February 3, 1952 in New York City. She attended Hunter College High School and Barnard College. She received her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree in Textile Arts from the California College of the Arts in 1975. She then began a long association with the community on the Island of Taquile, in the Puno region of Peru, conducting fieldwork on native weaving techniques. She also began a long-term affiliation with the Museo Nacional de Etnografia y Folklore in La Paz, Bolivia and collected textiles in the Macusani region of Peru for an exhibit at the California Academy of Sciences. She received her Master’s degree in Latin American Studies from the University of Texas, Austin in 1983, with fieldwork concentrated on economic development and tourism in Taquile, Peru. During her time in Peru in the 1970's and 1980's, Zorn became an accomplished musician, playing the charango and Bolivian mandolin in performances in Andean towns as well as in New York City. Zorn resumed graduate studies in 1985 at Cornell University where she received her Master of Arts degree in anthropology in 1987 followed by her Ph.D. in 1997. At Cornell she worked under the supervision of Professor Billie Jean Isbell and conducted much of her dissertation fieldwork in Sakaka, Bolivia focusing on the global transformation of cloth and identity in highland Andean regions. Zorn worked as a visiting Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Colgate University from 1997 to 1998 and then hired as Professor of Anthropology at the University of Central Florida from 1998 until 2010. While at the University of Central Florida, Zorn received both teaching-related and research-related awards as well as grants to continue her fieldwork in the Andean regions of Peru and Bolivia. She also co-directed the PeruVine/PeruDigital Project, an interactive and immersive website to present field data from Peru’s Institute of Ethnomusicology online. In 2004 Zorn published her book, Weaving a Future: Tourism, Cloth and Culture on an Andean Island (University of Iowa Press), an analysis of textile traditions as it relates to global change.

In addition to her academic duties, throughout her career Zorn collaborated with various museums and cultural institutions as a consultant and collector. These included, but are not limited to, The Brooklyn Museum, The Textile Museum, Smithsonian Center for Folklife Programs, UNICEF and the Inter-American Foundation. She was also a member of various professional societies including the American Anthropological Association, the Bolivian Studies Association, the Society for Latin American, Carribean, and Latino Studies as well as the Textile Society of America. Zorn passed away June 15, 2010 and was survived by her mother, Sandra Gordon, and her son, Gavriel Cutipa-Zorn.

Collection Inventory

Series 1: Field Research, 1975-2006

This series contains field research relating to Elayne Zorn's ehtnographic work beginning in 1975 and continuing until her death in 2010. Arranged into four subseries, the first three subseries' contain material from the geographical locations where Zorn conducted the bulk of her field research. This fieldwork took place in the Andean regions of Peru and Bolivia with a focus on the art of weaving and the effects of tourism within highland communities. These three subseries' are arranged chronologically beginning with Taquile, Peru (1975-1994) followed by Sakaka, Bolivia (1985-1994) and La Paz, Bolivia (2006). Within each subseries the material is arranged alphabetically. This material consists of field notebooks, archival notes and general research. The fourth subseries contains miscellaneous notes related to field reasearch but not necessarily related to one particular trip. This includes notes on calendar belts, weaving and loom terms as well as various unidentifiable field notes and notebooks.

Subseries 1A: Taquile, Peru, 1975-1994 (bulk 1975-1983), 1 Linear feet

This subseries contains field research material from Zorn's time in Taquile, Peru an island located in Lake Titicaca. Although Zorn returned many times to the island of Taquile (see a detailed list of fieldwork in B3.2) the bulk of her field research in this subseries is concentrated between 1977 and 1981. This includes field notebooks, originals and copies, immigration paperwork and notes from her project with the Inter-American Foundation. Field notes from her research in Macusani, Peru are also included in this series but the bulk of her work in Macusani was conducted on behalf of the California Academy of Sciences and can be found in Series 2, Professional Activities.

Subseries 1B: Sakaka, Bolivia, 1985-1994 (bulk 1985-1989), 2 Linear feet

This subseries contains Zorn's field research during her time in Sakaka, an area in the northern Potosi region of Bolivia. The material includes field notebooks as well as archivial work conducted at the National Archives of Bolivia. Much of this field research went towards her Ph.D. dissertation completed in 1997 entitled "Marketing Diversity: Global Transformations in Cloth and Identity in Highland Peru and Bolivia." Also included in this subseries are vocabulary notes on Quechua and Aymara, as well as textile notes. Within Zorn's field notebooks there are a small amount of notes regarding research work in La Paz, Bolivia as well. Most of her archival notes are in spanish. In addition, there are two cuadernos de campo, or field notebooks, included in this subseries written by Zorn's husband at the time, Juan Cutipa. They are included here since they relate directly to Zorn's work in Sakaka. The rest of Cutipa's notebooks can be found in Series 4, Ephemera and Miscellaneous.

General note

Sakaka spelled with a "K" refers to the ethnic group or ayllu whose territory roughly corresponds to the Alonso de Ibanez territory in the Northern Potosi region of Bolivia. Sacaca spelled with a "C" refers only to the colonial town of that name which is the capital of the province.

Series 5: Photographs, 1970-2006

The photographs series in the Zorn collection has been divided into four subseries based on medium. These include: negatives, slides, prints and digital media. The bulk of the photographs document Zorn's work in Andean communities in Bolivia and Peru from the late 1970's until 2002. It is important to note that there are many duplications across the different mediums.

Subseries 5A: Negatives, 1976-1997, 11526 Negatives (photographic)

The negatives in this subseries are arranged chronologically and from there maintain Zorn's original order from her photo binders. Within each box are subdivided sections which are listed with the locations the photographs were taken. The number in parentheses next to the location name corresponds with a negative number Zorn would refer back to when reprinting images. Not all negatives have a corresponding number. The majority of the negatives in this collection are from Zorn's field work in the highlands of Peru and Bolivia. There are small amounts of images from Mexico in 1976, Zorn's personal photography at her home in Ithaca, New York, as well as images from the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in 1994 which highlighted the community of Taquile, Peru. Additionally, there are several negative sheets that are unlabled and undated which can be found at the end of this subseries.

Subseries 5B: Slides, 1970-2002, 11412 Slides (photographs)

The slides in this subseries cover a large span of Zorn's work both as an anthropologist and as a museum collector. The slides are arranged in two ways maintaining where possible Zorn's original order and descriptions. The first half of the slides are arranged chronologically starting in 1970 and then alphabetically within the year by geographic location or event title. As with the negatives, the bulk of the slides, particularly between the late 1970's until the late 1980's, cover Zorn's fieldwork in the Andean Highlands in the Bolivian and Peruvian regions closest to Lake Titicaca. The slides from the year 2002 do not originate from the negatives in her series but rather from digital images which are included in the digital media series. The second half of the slides were organized topically by Zorn. A majority of these slides are images of textiles Zorn took as a textile collector and weaver. Other topics include; family and friends, llamas and landscapes, musical instruments and weavers. This series also contains slides of images from books as well as slides of postcards and record covers found during her travels. It should be noted that not all of the slides were taken by Zorn herself. The slides photographed by her former husband Juan Cutipa generally bear a copyright symbol with his name. Slides received from other photographers and collections are marked with their name or organization.

Subseries 5C: Prints, 1978-2000, undated, 1469 Photographic prints

The photographic prints in this subseries are mostly reproductions of slides and negatives Zorn took while traveling in Peru and Bolivia. There are a large amount of 3x5 color prints from Zorn's work in the Andean regions of Bolivia and Peru from 1988 to 1989. Although these prints are mostly unlabled it is likely that many of them were taken in Sakaka, Bolivia. Zorn also printed out many photographs from the 1994 Smithsonian Folklife Festival in which community members from Taquile were invited to attend and perform at. Additionally, Zorn printed out various images from her many trips to Taquile as black and white 8x10's for use in her publication, Weaving A Future. There are smaller amounts of photographic prints covering other topics such as musical instruments and textiles. This subseries has been aranged first chronologically by field research followed by an alphabetical arrangement by topic.
