QUERY> Contemporary Ethnography of the Hungry Ghost Festival in the PRC

Dear Colleagues,

I am trying to locate contemporary (since 1980) English/French ethnographies of the Hungry Ghost Festival (yu lan jie 盂兰节/zhong yuan jie 中元节) in China.

Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
