Studies in Italian American Folklore

ed. Luisa Del Giudice

Also by Luisa Del Giudice - Imagined States: Nationalism, Utopia, and Longing in Oral Culture

Publication of the American Folklore Society

The first published collection of essays on the folk culture of Italian Americans and Canadians, this book attains a depth of analysis rarely attained in Italian American folklore scholarship. Italian American folklife is not evolving in a vacuum, it draws from dynamic, local and specific, as well as regional and national Italian cultural expressions.
