About This Book

1. This book takes an ethnographic approach to UNESCO, providing readers a global perspective on folklore/intangible cultural heritage. As such it studies cultural diplomacy through/in the field of folklore. This accessibly and engagingly written collection of articles is written by internationally known folklorist, Valdimar Tr. Hafstein.

2. In addition to being a trained academic, the author is the Former Chair of Iceland's National Commission for UNESCO, NGO observer at WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization), and former president of the International Society for Ethnology and Folklore (SIEF).

3. The project is threefold: 1) it explores the meetings, conventions, and decisions that led to UNESCO's Intangible Heritage Convention; 2) it calls on the discipline of folklore to study the everyday in institutions of power as well as in places that lack power; 3) it examines how folklore concepts get used and interpreted outside of the academy and how those concepts work (or don't work) and impact global ideas of heritage.
