The nexus of Ethnic Minority Literature and Folkloristics, located in in one department, fosters the integration of common interests, while department resources and faculty specializations allow for concentrated exploration of interests particular to each area.
The Department is especially strong in:
  •  Oral traditions studies
  •  Living oral epic and performance studies
  •  Field study and ethnographic writing
  •  Oral heritage, documentation and cultural policy
  •  History of ethnic minority literature
  •  Literary relations in the history of Han Chinese Literature
Concentrations in both Ethnic Minority Literature and Folklore studies both focus on the cultural contexts as well as the experiential and cognitive aspects of:
  •  Living epic traditions and folk narratives
  •  Oral poetics and the verbal arts
  •  Connections between oral and written literary traditions
  •  Traditional expressive forms in contemporary writers’ works
  •  Cultural diversities and multiple identities
  •  History of ICH scholarship and folklore studies
