Posted by: Alexandra Sanchez

Chinese Folklore Studies Today: Discourse and Practice is a volume edited by Lijun Zhang and Ziying You, with a foreword by Chao Gejin. This volume contains an introduction to the history and trend of folklore studies in China by the editors and contributions from folklorists in China and the US, including Yongyi Yue, Levi S. Gibbs, and Junxia Wang.

The volume illustrates the dynamics of contemporary folklore studies in China as seen through the eyes of younger scholars. Contributors to this volume focuses on topics that have long been the dominant areas of folklore studies in China, including myth, folk song, and cultural heritage, as well as topics that are relatively new to the field, such as urban folklore and women’s folklore. The ethnographic case studies presented here represent a broad range of geographic areas within mainland China and also introduce English-language readers to relevant Chinese literature on each topic.
