Institute of Ethnomusicology

Through continuous research, the institute illuminates the issues related to changes, presentations and reception of folk song, music and dance. Exploring these issues is embedded in contemporary international research on heritage processes, both in terms of instrumentalisation of heritage and spaces of identification. In addition to regular research work and publishing research results, the core task of the institute is restoration, storage and publication of archival material in digital formats (CDs, online access to audio, manuscript or photo material), concerts and workshops related to folk music and dance, and cooperation with pedagogical and cultural-political institutions.
