Studies in Folklore and Ethnology is published by Lexington Books, an imprint of Rowman and Littlefield. Books in this series highlight cultural traditions around the world and the persons and communities that enact them. Including monographs and edited collections, the series emphasizes studies of living folk practices, artists, settings, and groups toward a broad understanding of the dynamics of tradition and identity in the modern world.
