CHINOPERL: Journal of Chinese Oral and Performing Literature
Cambridge University members now have online access to CHINOPERL: Journal of Chinese Oral and Performing Literature (1969 to present) on the Project Muse platform.
From the Project Muse website:
“The focus of CHINOPERL is on literature connected to oral performance, broadly defined as any form of verse or prose that has elements of oral transmission, and, whether currently or in the past, performed either formally on stage or informally as a means of everyday communication. Such “literature” includes widely-accepted genres such as the novel, short story, drama, and poetry, but may also include proverbs, folksongs, and other traditional forms of linguistic expression.
“Formerly CHINOPERL Papers, number 6 (1976) through number 31 (2012); CHINOPERL News, number 1 (1969) through number 5 (1975).”
