Asian American Identities and Practices free pdf In Asian American Identities and Practices: Folkloric Expressions in Everyday Life Jonathan Lee and Kathleen Nadeau present the rich hybrid and cultural identities that many Asian American communities cultivate through folklore and its many manifestations in the context of daily life. Featuring contributors who engage theory in practice at the community level from a bottom-up and hands-on perspective, this collection reveals how folklore emerges out of life itself-ever bridging the past and present, the seen and the unseen, changing even as it is "being" appropriated, reinvented, and transformed.
