During these two years (1999-2000), Major topics of our project are focused on developing the method of intensive field researches, and making of the ethnography in Chinese villages. At the first research (1999) , we investigated extensively around Qingpu Prefecture, Jiading Ward and Songjiang Ward in Shanghai. Thereafter, we determined the intensive research fields on Jinglingqiao Village, Sicun Village, Lianjian Village and Lianzhuang Village in Songjiang Ward. We stayed there about one month, made ethography of South East Chinese Villages as a report of investigation. As a result, we could describe the traditional and modern folk customs in South East Chinese Villages, for example, social structure, lineage system, political organization, subsistence, rites of passage, ceremony, festival, belief, oral literature, food, clothing and housing.
We could succeeded to understand these subjects in rural villages of Southern East China where have transformed rapidly by the general policy of reform and openness. Especially, we could peruse and copy the statistical data that had been formerly difficult to look and take a picture. The method of this research consists of an interview, and we could also get the document that was equivalent to an interview. This will be contributing to a research for the future.
