Heritages: Perspectives and Practices
The first issue of the 50th volume of Traditiones, the journal of the Institute of Slovenian Ethnology and Institute of Ethnomusicology ZRC SAZU, is dedicated to heritage perspectives and practices. The content of the issue follows the topics of the conference Borders and Boundaries of/in Heritage scheduled for April 2020 and conceived by the Institute of Slovenian Ethnology in cooperation with the Cultural Heritage and Property Working Group and the Space-Lore and Place-Lore Working Group of the International Society for Ethnology and Folklore (SIEF). The conference was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, whereas the papers were published in Traditiones. The volume and editorial by Jurij Fikfak bring an overview of research to date (Alessandro Testa: The Anthropology of Cultural Heritage in Europe ), a view forward (Laurent Sébastien Fournier: Current and Future Developments in Heritage Studies; Regina Bendix: Life Itself), and concrete heritage practices (Roland W. Peball and Klaus Schönberger: Territorial and Linguistic Demarcations in the Dispositif Kärnten/Koroška; Božidar Jezernik: Remaking the Heritage of the Italian Concentration Camp on the Island of Rab; Petko Hristov: Sacred Places and Cultural Memory on a Triple Border; Katarína Koštialovám and Ivan Murin: Changes in Intangible Cultural Heritage in Slovakia; Barbara Ivančič Kutin and Monika Kropej: Local Legends from the Pohorje Mountains above Slovenska Bistrica). Špela Ledinek Lozej and Marjeta Pisk, members of the programme goup published a paper on the Slovenian-Italian cross-border heritage initiatives (Collections, Walks, and Cultural Landscapes).
