POPULAR TRADITIONS, FOLKLORE AND POLITICS
Languages of publication
The article studies how the 'language' of folk traditions and folklore continues to be a tried-and-tested means for the representation and propagation of political concepts and ideas. The authoress notes transformations in the significance of folklore and folk traditions in historically changing both political and socio-cultural contexts. Attention is drawn to the significance of folklore in the nation-forming thinking of the 19th century, the place of honour accorded to it as an expression of the working people during the period of socialism, and its contradictory perception in the post-socialist context today.
