Languages of publication
The media success of the Hungarian and Slovak folklore show has anew opened up a discussion about the current forms of folklorism. Less known is the development of folkloristics that it has passed through beginning with theoretical schools of historical and musical folklore to its application to public sphere. The contemporary folklorism boom in Hungary is associated with the attempt of Hungarian folklorists´ to renew the older forms of Hungarian traditional culture by means of scenic (art) and public presentations. These best practice methods (UNESCO) become theoretical and methodological concepts of Hungarian folklorists and ethnomusicologists. The aim of this study is to inform the readers with Hungarian schools of historic and music folklore research, which are directly related to the applied method, also called Táncház - módszer. The study is one of the reflections concerning discussions within folklorism scenic art versus public spread, and creation versus citation of folklore contents.
