Experts on folklore are the major academic cornerstone in the campaign of protecting the non-material cultural heritage. Nowadays,scholars on the non-material cultural heritage mainly evolve from the experts on folklore. It is a popular agreement among the experts on folklore that it is the unavoidable responsibility for the experts on folklore to get involved in the protection of the non-material heritage,and that it is also a brand new historical opportunity. Meanwhile,as a regular study,folklore is in dilemma now:the combination of scientific study and political situation is due to result in the loss of academic independence; the standstill of the regular study will further lower the importance of folklore in the realm of academic study; the abandonment of the fundamental study and the existing mode surly lead to the asthenia of the further study; once the campaign of protecting the non-material heritage comes to an end,the experts on folklore will face the dilemma. We are reminded by the history of academic study that each academic campaign has to pay the cost of immense decline of academic level.
