Abstract

There is abundant research on the epic Jangar, which involves many fields such as literature, culture, document, etc. The cross-study between Jangar and different disciplines boosts its continued vitality in the contemporary era. The research achievements are as follows. The comparative research is remarkable and the linkage development trend with domestic and foreign literature is optimistic. Besides, multi-channel cultural research is concurrent with steadily advanced source exploration, and the research field has expanded under multidisciplinary guidance. Outstanding achievements have been made in Jangar and Jangarology, and the research on epic development and literature collation has attracted much attention. Meanwhile, the expansion of theoretical construction and the innovation of communication methods flourish the research on Jangar. However, as for the current research situation, there are still some challenges, such as divides in basic problems, insufficient in-depth and comprehensive research fields, and hardships in implementing the inheritance and protection of intangible cultural heritage.

Among the early scholars, Baoyin Hexige first put forward the saying that Jangar came into being after the 13th century, which is involved in his General Situation of Domestic Research on Jangar (Literature Research Trends, (10), 1984). According to Ren Qing’s Overview of the Study of Jangar (Literature Research Trends, (24), 1982), Jangar came into being after the 13th century, that is, it basically formed in the 17th century. It is worth mentioning that Renqin Daoerji also put forward a similar view in the Re-discussing the Age of Jangar’s Emergence (National Literature Research, (2), 1991). Previous view that Jangar came into being at the end of primitive society and in the first century being from the migration of Weilat people to Altai to the 15th-17th century before Erxite moved westward to Volga River Basin has been changed. In other words, from 15th to 17th century, this view is also worthy of attention. Liu Lanshan’s On Jangar (National Literature, (11), 1982), Liu Hu’s Discussion on the Age of Epics such as Jangar (National Literature Research, (2), 1988) and Aldin Fu’s A Preliminary Study on the Emergence and Basic Formation of Jangar (Journal of Inner Mongolia Normal University, 1986) think that Jangar came into being around 1206 BC, basically no later than the beginning of the 13th century. Taking Aldin Fu’s viewpoint as an example, it does not contain the shadow of important historical events in Mongolia after the 13th century and does not reflect the common national consciousness of Mongolia. It is considered that Jangar came into being before the 13th century. His viewpoint provides reference for the follow-up research on this issue, with many scholars elaborating on this basis.

For example, the source of the name Jangar, the historical period reflected by Jangar, and the time and space boundaries of its emergence, etc.

For example, the comparative study perspective at home and abroad is not comprehensive, the analysis of epic structure and motif is not deep enough, and the artistic style of singers is not discussed. The most remarkable problem is that the comparative study with foreign literature and Jangar’s different texts is not sufficient, which is not conducive to the internationalization of Jangar.
