This volume approaches a central concern of oral literature studies worldwide: how to deal with oral genres in a world where new technologies have become available to more and more people? What is new in the present book is that the spotlight is directed towards (old and new) ‚`interlocutors“ who cooperate in the making of technologized oral genres in an increasingly technologized world. Their interactions affect the performance as well as research; their roles and positions raise methodological and ethical questions particularly when local/national identities and commercial interests are at stake.
