Intangible CulturalHeritage in Asia:Traditions in Transition 8:30-10:30PM EST Virtual; via Zoom

Join Nanzan University and the College of Wooster’s Dr. Ziying You at this virtual symposium that features the guest editors and contributors of the Asian Ethnology Special Issue “Intangible Cultural Heritage in Asia: Traditions in Transition” (AE 79-1). The special issue was structured around six case studies from China, India, Japan, and Malaysia, conducted by scholars from Asia, Europe, and America, with interdisciplinary training in folklore, anthropology, and ethnomusicology. The contributors combined both top-down and bottom-up approaches to illuminate various discourses and practices surrounding the definition, listing, and safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage (ICH) within particular social, political, cultural, and economic contexts in Asia. The key themes that emerged across the six case studies included: (1) an Asian paradigm of the safeguarding of ICH; (2) listing, nationalism, and the reification process of ICH; (3) international, national, and local politics surrounding ICH; (4) the interplay of ICH, tourism, and economic development; and (5) ICH and communities in discourse and in practice. To join, please register here.
