For a collection of essays tentatively entitled "The Folklore of Resistance," I am seeking papers showing how marginalized groups utilize expressive culture, broadly defined, to define and assert themselves against existing power systems. I will entertain essays with any theoretical bent, but I am looking for resolutely empirical studies in which theory illuminates rather than swamping the data. Please send 250 word abstracts to tftuleja@yahoo.com.
