Translingual Folklore and Folklorics in China

Liu, Lydia H.

Folklore can mean different things to different people and even become different things as it travels from place to place across the various technological media: writing, print, gramophone, radio, film, television, and so on. Focusing on the work of modern folklorists in China and their translation of a colonial discourse, this article – a chapter in "Companion to Folklore" (2012) – examines the global trajectory of folklore studies in colonial mimicry, nationalism, and the staging of the world revolution in the twentieth century.
