WHAT WE CAN'T AVOID IN UNIFIED EUROPE: THINKING ABOUT THE PERSPECTIVES OF THE SLOVAK ETHNOLOGY (AND A SCIENCE GENERALLY) IN EUROPEAN UNION
Languages of publication
The paper deals with place, tendencies and perspectives of ethnology / anthropology in Slovakia, a new Member State of the European Union. It supports co-existence of more descriprive and comparative etnology that has a long tradition in Slovakia, and modern social and cultural anthropology that needs to be built on a new basis. Results of ethnological and anthropological research should introduce various aspects of traditional as well as present culture and society in Slovakia to a wider readership in European Union, which requires publishing in English or other foreign languages. It is important to extend the range of research topics and pay more attention to various phenomena of the transition society. Research projects funded by the European Commission are often focused on current socio-economic processes, and are mostly policy-oriented and interdisciplinary. Research training has to develop in line with the EU research trends and to reflect changing demands of the global labour market.
