    Special Issue on Cultural Anthropology and Folklore


    Cultural anthropology pays attention to all human cultural phenomena and focuses on the origin, growth and change of human culture as a whole, as well as the types, structures and functions of cultures. Folk custom pays more attention to study folk culture inheritance. There is an obvious timeline concept in the study of these two subjects. That is, by tracing the whole history of human origin and development, it explores race, community, and social culture. The cognition and exposition of this kind of humanistic phenomenon and the customs are the subjects that the academic research pays close attention to very much.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring cultural anthropology and folklore. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Oral literature
    • Ceremony and celebration
    • Religious belief
    • Material Folklore
    • Forms of human life
    • Cultural difference
    • Folk art
    • Inheritance of folklore

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Cultural Anthropology and Folklore” should be chosen during your submission.
