Subject: Oral Tales of Mongolian Bards published We are pleased to announce that the website Oral Tales of Mongolian Bards has recently been published at https://mongoltales.awk.nrw.de/. The Oral Tales of Mongolian Bards are an edition of eighteen oral tales performed by bards of eastern Inner Mongolia (China), including four epic narratives and fourteen tales based on Chinese adventure novels, known as quγur-un üliger (“tales of the fiddle”), i.e. tales accompanied by the music of the four-stringed fiddle (quγur). The texts form a portion of a large collection of Mongolian folk literature, recorded on tape between 1980 and 1995 by Professor Walther Heissig of Bonn University as well as by Mongolian scholars. The entire collection is currently preserved at the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts in Düsseldorf, Germany. The eighteen texts of this publication are presented as digital audio recordings alongside their Mongolian transcription. Eleven texts are accompanied by long summaries in English, partly with commentaries. Seven texts are provided with short summaries. The research work was carried out by the Mongolist and Sinologist Dr. Elisabetta Chiodo, with Professor Klaus Sagaster as project coordinator. The task of digitization, digital publication and archiving was carried out by the Cologne Center for eHumanities. The project was funded by the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts in Düsseldorf and by the Foundation of Friends and Sponsors of the Academy.
