Anglický název: BULGARISTIC STUDIES AT ANTHROPOLOGY DEPARTMENT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF WEST BOHEMIA IN PILSEN
Rok vydání: 2015
Autoři: Doc. PhDr. Marek Jakoubek Ph.D. , Mgr. Gabriela Fatková ,
Abstrakt CZ: Bulgarian and Balkan studies used to be a popular topic in Czechoslovak ethnography before the transformations in 1989. The new period brought new topics to the social sciences and humanities. Balkan area was not attractive terrain for the new-born discipline of social and cultural anthropology. Balkan terrains gained popularity at the end of the 1990s, when the first anthropological fieldwork was conducted in Bulgaria. They were originally focused on the local Czech compatriot communities and later spread to non-Czech communities, such as Karakachani or Gagauz. In the following decade a group of researchers was formed at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen. We call this informal group ?balkanistic work group?. It worked at the Department of Historical and Anthropological Sciences, lately restructured and renamed as the Department of Anthropology. Activities of this group consist mainly of book and article publications, conference organization and educational process (specialized subject, field trips with students, theses supervising). Research in Bulgaria gained a special place among all activities of the ?balkanistic work group?. Although the University of West Bohemia lacks philological programs focused on Balkan studies or Bulgarian studies, this interest found its place under the newly formed discipline of social and cultural anthropology. We can compare this development with other places, where studies focused on Balkan areas were formed exclusively as philological programs.
