  • "Almost Folklore": The Legend That Killed Nella Larsen's Literary Career
    • Abstract: the standard list of harlem renaissance writers who most often used folkloric material in their fiction is well known; among them are Langston Hughes, Jean Toomer, and, of course, Zora Neale Hurston. By contrast, Nella Larsen's two short novels, Quicksand (1928) and Passing (1929), are often held up as examples of the urbane, high-Modernist counterpoint to the "folksy" style of the others. However, Larsen appears to have been more attuned to and influenced by folk sources than has previously been imagined. In fact, Ann duCille has explicitly argued against the critical view that sees Larsen's work as antithetical to the more "authentic," folkloric writing of some of her Harlem Renaissance contemporaries. DuCille ... Read More

  • In Search for Truth: Surveillance Rumors and Vernacular Panopticon in
           Belarus
    • Abstract: scholars studying surveillance suggest various societal shifts as crucial for its rise—industrialization, urbanization, globalization, terrorism—but most of them agree that surveillance emerged "as a dominant organizing practice of late modernity" (Lyon, Haggerty, and Ball 2012:1), making its way through the diversity of political regimes all over the world. As an academic response, an autonomous discipline of surveillance studies has recently emerged from international relations, political science, criminology, and the sociology of policing and technology (Bigo 2012:279). In one of the most comprehensive books on this discipline, Routledge Handbook of Surveillance Studies, Gary T. Marx claims that scholarly ... Read More

  • Polish Paremic Demotivators: Tradition in an Internet Genre
    • Abstract: Quo vadis, proverbium' This question underlies (explicitly or implicitly) many a proverbial discussion among paremiologists nowadays, as it is particularly relevant in an age of re-evaluating "folklore" as a concept and folklore genres in contemporary communication. The issues raised with regard to the presence of paremias in today's communication (oral, written, pictorial, symbolic, etc.) are, on the one hand, the same as they have always been—that is, whether or not proverbs are still used, and which proverbs are utilized nowadays, how frequently, by whom, where, and to what purposes.1 Proverb scholars continue to provide answers to such questions by examining this folklore genre within the extensive material ...

  • Proverbs in the Academy: A Folklore Studies Activity for the Writing
           Classroom
    • Abstract: What follows is an account of a learning activity involving proverbs and the recommendation for its use in writing classrooms to promote higher-order thinking and analytical skills closely tied to effective academic writing. Previous scholarship (e.g., Brickman 1993; Harp 1978; Manzo 1981) offering indications of the benefits of examining these popular expressive forms rarely presents extensive discussion of the cognitive skills involved in the task. With rare exceptions such as Holden and Warshaw (1985), the rationale for engaging students in the consideration of proverbs as complex social and linguistic constructs tends to be underdeveloped in the literature devoted specifically to writing instruction, something ...

  • Daniel R. Barnes (1940–2014)
    • Abstract: Dan Barnes was a brilliant scholar of American literature and folklore. He was a beloved professor in the Department of English at The Ohio State University for 28 years, from 1967 to 1995, when he was honored with the title Emeritus Professor. Students loved his quick wit and unending repertoire of jokes, which he used to grab their attention while also explaining complex literary theory. His range of knowledge was remarkable, both in his teaching and in his scholarship.The titles of a few of his many published articles give some indication of how vast his expertise was: "An Early American Collection of Rogues' Cant," Journal of American Culture (1966); "Folktale Morphology and the Structure of Beowulf," Speculum ...

Born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama, in 1952, he was the eighth child of William Percy and Mary (Bitnell) Goodwin. As a child, Joe was no stranger to community and cultural diversity. He often spoke to me of his German playmates whose parents were involved with space-age technology. He attended Huntsville schools and the University of Alabama, where he received a BA in English. Joe was introduced to folklore studies as an undergraduate under the tutelage of Beatrice Kane McLain and in fact enjoyed the company of three other future folklorists: Deborah Boykin, John Bealle, and Carolyn Lipson-Walker.Joe is ...

  • Built with Faith: Italian American Imagination and Catholic Material
           Culture in New York City by Joseph Sciorra (review)
    • Abstract: Sciorra's summa represents 35 years of scholarship on New York City Italian American vernacular "materializations of the sacred" all along a spectrum of "old, new, and emerging symbols, objects, and behaviors" (p. xxxvii), including yard shrines, domestic altars, nativity scenes (presepi), grottoes, feasts, processions, and high-wattage holiday house displays—many of which demonstrate a social genius of transforming the private into the public; of turning a house display into a block party, a parking hut into a communal shrine, or a grotto into a "nursing home of statues" (p. 144). These are "communal sites of ethnically infused religiosity" (p. xviii).Sciorra reviews the historically visually intensive culture of ... Read More

  • From Canton Restaurant to Panda Express: A History of Chinese Food in the
           United States by Haiming Liu (review)
    • Abstract: With From Canton Restaurant to Panda Express, Haiming Liu of the Ethnic and Women's Studies Department of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, has given us an informative and useful social history of Chinese restaurants and their cuisine in the United States (but not of Chinese food generally, as the subtitle suggests). He also provides capsule social histories of the ways in which food and food service stood for matters of ethnic identity among Chinese immigrants and communities in the United States and for relations between those immigrant communities and the surrounding US society. In these processes, elements of several Chinese regional cuisines have been adapted or creatively re-imagined to suit ... Read More

  • Love Stories: Language, Private Love, and Public Romance in Georgia by
           Paul Manning (review)
    • Abstract: In Love Stories, Paul Manning effectively explores the distinctive traditional sexual practices of the Khevsurs, a group living in the mountains of the country of Georgia. Their traditions could have easily been lost after their forced resettlement by Stalin in 1952, but their love poetry and the literature it inspired have kept the Khevsurs in the minds of the people of Georgia.Khevsur youth were expected to engage in clandestine expressions of heterosexual desire not leading to sexual intercourse with distant relatives and others from their home community. Tradition as well as a code of honor and shame set strict parameters for physical contact. Interestingly enough, those encountered in the process would not be ... Read More

  • Remembering Nayeche and the Gray Bull Engiro: African Storytellers of the
           Karamoja Plateau and the Plains of Turkana by Mustafa Kemal Mirzeler
           (review)
    • Abstract: Mustafa Kemal Mirzeler's Remembering Nayeche and the Gray Bull Engiro is an engaging study of the ethnohistory and storytelling of the Jie and Turkana people who live in northern Uganda and Kenya. Much contemporary scholarly and journalistic writing about this geopolitical region and its nomadic and semi-nomadic peoples emphasizes the warring between groups for limited resources and the groups' involvement in local, national, and international conflicts. Mirzeler chose not to contribute to these negative portrayals and instead focused his ethnographic study on the oral traditions of the Jie and Turkana people. At the core of this study are the multiple variants of stories about Nayeche and the gray bull Engiro, an ... Read More

  • Reinventing Chinese Tradition: The Cultural Politics of Late Socialism by
           Ka-ming Wu (review)
    • Abstract: This new volume in the University of Illinois Press's Interpretations of Culture in the New Millennium series looks at how local folk traditions in north China form a discursive site wherein "the cultural logic of late socialist China" is played out (p. 5). Focusing on three folk traditions from northern Shaanxi province in northern central China—paper-cutting, folk storytelling, and spirit cult practices—Ka-ming Wu attempts "to provide new interpretations of the meanings of folk culture" in late socialist Chinese society (p. 3). These account for "the dynamic interpenetration among the party-state, cultural practitioners, rural villagers, urban consumers, and the uneasy politics of appropriation and engagements ... Read More

  • Folk Art and Modern Culture in Republican China by Felicity Lufkin
           (review)
    • Abstract: Folk Art and Modern Culture in Republican China is a valuable and readable book. It is not only suitable for research scholars, but also for a general readership interested in discovering modern Chinese history and culture, folk art, and prints.The book focuses on the role and position of Chinese folk art, especially woodcut prints, in relation to modern Chinese history and modern print development from the early 1930s to the mid-1940s. The book examines intellectuals' encounters with folk art rather than the experiences of folk artists themselves. Through clear historical narration and critical analysis of major historical events, figures, influential organizations, publications, collections, and artwork during ... Read More

  • Folksongs of Another America: Field Recordings from the Upper Midwest,
           1937–1946 by James P. Leary (review)
    • Abstract: Here we have a treasure, a cornucopia of songs and tunes recorded in the Upper Midwest during the late 1930s–mid-1940s by Sidney Robertson, Alan Lomax, and Helene Stratman-Thomas. There are over 200 cuts on the five CDs and one DVD; the thick book these disks flank is an extensive, meticulous, and engaging collection of liner notes. The limits of the set are only those of the field recordings made by these open-minded collectors during those years. Leary selected (and carefully cleaned up) a nice balance of representative and exceptional cuts. The broadest organization is by collector; within that they are largely organized by ethnicity, freely defined. An additional category is "lumberjacks," most but not all of ... Read More

  • Performing Afro-Cuba: Image, Voice, Spectacle in the Making of Race and
           History by Kristina Wirtz (review)
    • Abstract: In Performing Afro-Cuba, anthropologist Kristina Wirtz examines the cultural construction of race in Cuba, exploring ethnographic sites that range from folkloric performances and festivals to linguistic acts, works of art, and even such prosaic contexts as restaurant decor. Performing Afro-Cuba is a sophisticated intervention in critical race theory that brings a much-needed perspective from the Global South, in this case a small communist island in the Caribbean. Furthermore, Wirtz' inquiry, located in Santiago de Cuba, adds to a small but growing body of research focused on Cuba's provinces rather than its more familiar capital, Havana. In looking deeply at the local, Wirtz shines light on processes of ... Read More

  • Appalachian Dance: Creativity and Continuity in Six Communities by Susan
           Eike Spalding (review)
    • Abstract: In Appalachian Dance, Susan Eike Spalding presents the stories of the people and their dance in six communities in the Appalachian region. The collective experience of each community is reflected in square dancing, solo footwork dancing, and other social dance forms that have emerged in the last century. Spalding discusses how these communities have dealt creatively with issues of industrialization, race relations, and folk revivals by investigating the roles individuals and institutions have played in the evolution of dance traditions in the Appalachian Mountains. Moreover, Spalding explores the nature of community and the dynamic qualities of tradition in these communities.Spalding begins by considering the ... Read More

  • Writing American Cultures: Studies of Identity, Community, and Place ed.
           by Sam Schrager (review)
    • Abstract: Ever since the publication of Spradley and Mc-Curdy's The Cultural Experience (Science Research Associates, 1972), I have been waiting for a comparable collection of folklore student essays. Writing American Cultures far exceeds my expectations, and it is a collection that stands on its own in addition to providing examples of what students can do when given the tools to undertake extensive ethnographic research. Sam Schrager begins the book by stating: "Imagine giving students the chance to dig deep into some corner of everyday life that fascinates them" (p. ix). The eight essays in the volume represent work done by students exploring their everyday lives in Schrager's ethnography seminar at The Evergreen State ... Read More
