REGIÓNY A REGIONALIZMUS V SLOVENSKEJ ETNOLÓGII DRUHEJ POLOVICE 20. STOROČIA
Regions and regionalism in Slovak ethnology in the second half of the 20th century
Languages of publication
Monographic and cartographic methods of regionally oriented research studies belonged in Slovak ethnography and folkloristic to the most preferred and most frequently employed ones between the 1960s and 1980s. Their concepts were characterised by the prevailing orientation on rescue research into the relics of farmer ś culture defined spatially – from local communities at the lowest level up to the larger territorial units. Owing to their vicinity in space, they implied not only close relationship between them but even homogeneity of particular phenomena. Comparison and evaluation of these phenomena from a historical perspective became relevant components of the research. The impulse for conducting regionally oriented research was received from a strong regionalism in the Slovak rural areas, still perceptible in the second half of the 250the century and expressed by means of abundant regional and local forms materialised and visualised in housing, clothing, artistic expression, folklore and rituals.
