Studies in Italian American Folklore

edited by Luisa Del Giudice

Publication of the American Folklore Society

The first published collection of essays on the folk culture of Italian Americans and Canadians, this book attains a depth of analysis rarely attained in Italian American folklore scholarship. Italian American folklife is not evolving in a vacuum; it draws from dynamic, local, and specific—as well as regional and national—Italian cultural expressions.


Luisa Del Giudice is director of the Italian Oral History Institute, visiting professor of Italian folklife at UCLA, and president of the International Kommission fur Volksdichtung of the Societe Internationale d'Ethnologie et Folklore.
