Power and Power Practice in Folklore Writing

WAN Jianzhong;  
For a long time,folklorists have been engaged in a one-way writing of folklore and have ignored the possibility and necessity of the participation of local people in folklore writing,They have taken such practice for granted and failed to give the situation due consideration. Normal discipline training and theoretical competence have endowed folklorists with discourse hegemony and legitimacy of monologue-like one-way writing of folklore. The binary opposition of two knowledge systems between the top level and the grass-roots level has become the foundation for construction of the power structure of folklore writing. As the word 'folklore' itself indicates,'folk',as the main participants of local customs,should also be the main writers in folklore writing. It will be a revolutionary move to bring folklore into a new era by returning the power of folklore writing to the 'folk'and providing a democratic,equal and fair stage for folklore writing in order to produce communicative,dialogic and shared ethnography.
