Človek v nedemokratických režimoch. Roky 1938-1989 v pamäti slovenskej majority a židovskej komunity. Etnologický pohľad
Program: VEGA
Project leader: PhDr. Salner Peter DrSc.
Annotation:This is a primary research project and its results will summarise as well as expand (in book form) selected aspects of the issue, which proponents have studied for a long time. Building on a critical analysis of the current state of the knowledge, combined with their own recent investigations, they study the images of non-democratic regimes – the Ľudák one (1938-1945) and the Communist one (1948-1989) – which persist in the memories ofthe people who lived through them, as well as the content of what these people have passed on to the subsequent generations. The proponents plan to compare, contrast deepen the knowledge of two distinct groups of the population: the Slovak majority and the Jewish minority. Utilizing the concepts of individual, social, collective memory, as defined by A. Assmann 2016, and in the intentions of the concept of divided memory (Herf 1997), data acquired by qualitative ethnological research methods will be analyzed with a focus on the chosen groups of Slovak society.

Etnografický výskum nenáboženskosti a sekularizmu v modernej slovenskej spoločnosti (životné trajektórie a príbehy)
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Zachar Podolinská Tatiana PhD.
Annotation:The population of non-religious people and people not affiliated in any church in Europe (but also in the US) has sharply increased throughout the past decades. At present, this population represents the second largest in most European countries. According to the recent findings, it is the most numerous group in the population of young adults (16-29 years) (Czech Republic, Estonia, UK). According to statistical and other international research, the size of this group in Slovakia is between 13 and 22%. While research of non-religiousness and secularism in other European countries is conducted by independent institutes and international network projects, no qualitative research has so far been carried out in Slovakia among this population sample. The project aims at presenting the ethnography and geography of the non-religious and secular people´s landscape and their divergent values and behavior patterns on the basis of their life trajectories and stories.

Program: VEGA
Project leader: PhDr. Popelková Katarína CSc.
Annotation:In the late modernity period, an increasing number of areas of our social contacts are penetrated by some type ofa cultural offer of experiences. The entire festive culture is affected by the dynamic process of changes. In thisprocess, the common forms of holidays, feasts, social occasions and cultural events are enriched with newelements of entertainment and with an offer of consumption. Along with this, specific forms of gathering,occasions and new artistic formations called events) are on the rise (Gebhardt 2000:18). Events as strategicallyconceived social gatherings produced for a certain purpose and aimed at providing an unusual experience andcollective entertainment, attract big amounts of people. These changes of global nature, which can be called theprocess of ‘eventisation’ (Hitzler 2011: 19), are covered by ethnology also in the framework of the study of thecurrent forms and contents of holidays and festivities. The proposed project aims to map the expressions of theprocess of eventisation.
