Folklore in Context: Essays in Honor of Shamsuzzaman Khan

Firoz Mahmud (Editor) Sharani Zaman (Editor)
Synopsis This collection of essays emphasises on the depth and intricacy of functions and innovative acts inherent in folklore. It focuses on the current trends of folklore scholarship in an attempt to show that human behaviour and cultural expression can be extracted and synthesised from verbal data as well as artifacts that form the folklore culture of a people. With examples from different religious and cultural traditions that involve references to the Ramayana, Sufism, and various art traditions, it deals with esoteric folklore, taking up Nathist folklore and Sufism among other themes, folk literature, Jewish folklore, urban folklore, and performance in folklore and folk art that relates to aspects of painting, costume, craftwork and sculpture with numerous examples. The essays by noted folklorists and scholars examine the role of the museum in preservation of heritage and promoting folk culture.
