Creative Ethnicity

Symbols and Strategies of Contemporary Ethnic Life

edited by Stephen Stern and John Allan Cicala

"In Creative Ethnicity, Stephen Stern and John Allan Cicala have gathered 14 essays and composed a rewarding collection that showcases individual contributions and presents excellent descriptions and varied perspectives on how ethnic identity is employed to 'absorb, invigorate, modify, and transmit folk expressions in a multicultural, pluralistic society' (p. xi)."

—Christopher Antonsen, Journal of American Folklore

 

Ethnic groups have always been an important part of American society. As the variety of ethnic groups in the United States flourishes, the unique dimension that ethnic life adds to American culture becomes increasingly important. This volume explores how ethnic groups creatively adapt and modify the folklore in response to living in a complex and changing pluralistic society.
