dc.descriptionEleven years ago the journal was founded to provide a forum for comparative exchange, a kind of "pituitary gland" to help organize a cross-disciplinary discourse that often suffered from reinventing the wheel. In these first ten annual volumes of OT, an electronic index to which will soon be available at the web site maintained by the Center for Studies in Oral Tradition (www.missouri.edu/~csottime), we have tried to bring scholars from disparate areas into an unprecedented, productive dialogue. Issue 11, ii illustrates this editorial policy, treating a rich variety of oral traditions and performances, from ballads to Shakespeare to Japanese storytelling, medieval English poetry, Finnish narrative, and African American rap music. Our editorial premise is clear: the best chance for understanding any single tradition lies in a realistic grasp of the plurality and heterogeneity of oral traditions. OT has been and will remain committed to this premise.eng
