We are thrilled to announce the launch of Island Folklore: Taiwanese Tales & Traditions! This is a new website designed to serve as an online repository of Taiwan’s folktales, legends, myths and other traditions.
Island Folklore is a collaborative project—based simultaneously in Toronto, Canada and Hsinchu, Taiwan—that endeavors to document and translate Taiwan’s folklore and traditional short stories. You can find everything about Island Folklore and its subject matter by visiting the following pages.
- The Project
- The Folks Behind Island Folklore
- What is Folklore?
- Series Info & Archives
- Get to Know Taiwan
Our stories will be published on our homepage beginning on 1 December 2016. In this dynamic age of worldwide interactions, we share with the global community our unwavering passion for intercultural understanding, respect, exchange and—of course—our passion for the folklore and culture of Taiwan!
