|China-US Folklore and Intangible Cultural Heritage Project|
Since 2007 the AFS, the China Folklore Society, and folklore studies institutions in both countries have worked cooperatively to build relationships between folklorists and folklore studies institutions in China and the US.
Follow these links to download the bilingual program books from our 2011-2013 China-US folklore and ICH conferences:
Then in 2013 the Luce Foundation awarded AFS a further three-year grant to take up a new phase of this work. Between 2013 and 2016, AFS--again working in partnership with the China Folklore Society and in collaboration with a number of institutions in both countries--is managing a program of conferences and professional exchanges for staff at China and US ethnographic museums, and the development of a number of new resources to support, and share information about, folklore studies scholarship in both countries.
For more information on the museum-related activities of the current project, please consult its more detailed project page.
