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.

Jonathan H. X. Lee is associate professor of Asian American studies at San Francisco State University. He is the editor of Cambodian American Experiences: Histories, Communities, Cultures, and Identities and co-editor with Kathleen M. Nadeau of the Encyclopedia of Asian American Folklore and Folklife. Kathleen Nadeau is a professor of anthropology at California State University, San Bernardino. She is the author of Liberation Theology in the Philippines: Faith in a Revolution, The History of the Philippines, and co-editor with Jonathan H. X. Lee of the Encyclopedia of Asian American Folklore and Folklife.
