The 17 papers in this collection are from two events: a September 2007 conference in Sheffield on the European folk revival 1760-1914, and an April 2008 workshop in Oxford on the transition from folk culture to national culture. Among the topics are shaping the voice of the people in 19th-century operas, folk culture at world's fairs and the reinvention of the nation, folklore as a weapon of national identity in German-annexed Alsace 1890-1914, establishing the Folk-Lore Society in London, oral traditions and the making of the Finnish nation, and identity and scientific cultures in a new discipline.
