A National Ethnology, its Concepts and its Ethnologists

Abstract

Ethnological concepts and research traditions in Croatia are viewed from the experience of the ethnologists, testimonies to the war and transition. Postmodern approach and rhetorics in describing/writing about the war is analyzed along with the recent use of the traditional ethnographic and folklore archive material. The political bias in ethnology is questioned and the necessity of a critical dialogued with the bearers of power is emphasized.
