Tribal Language, Literature and Folklore: Emerging Approaches in Tribal Studies


Contributions included in this volume are topically diverse and methodologically innovative; a general perspective pervading throughout is a reflection of an increasingly cross-disciplinary contemporary academic engagement in tribal epistemology with language, literature and folklore as critical areas of enquiry. The whole intellectual enterprise, however, is particularly crucial in that it draws the attention of readers to corresponding branches of knowledge emerging in the field of tribal studies by displaying distinct perspective approaches.

Precisely, with distinct cross-disciplinary analytical frames, the contributors of papers have employed suitable concepts, empirical data and theoretical perspectives to study tribal language, fictions and folk narratives.

Undoubtedly, the volume is of interest to scholars and students across various disciplines and particularly to all who are committed to tribal studies.
