Publications of the Institute of Ethnography SASA


    • The periodic publication titled The Collection of Papers of the Ethnographic Institute SAS/SASA began its life just three years after the Institute of Ethnography SASA was founded. The first issue of the edited volume was published as a sub-series in the series of Collections of Papers published by the Academy in 1950. The series Collection of Papers of SAS was started in 1949 with the objective of having the papers from different institutes within the SAS published in its sub-series. The series ceased to exist when the different institutes became independent, but the institutes themselves retain the publication, but as part of their own series. In this form the Institute of Ethnography published issues 1-4 (1950-1962).  The first issue titled The Collection of Papers of the Institute of Ethnography SASA came out in 1971 with volume no. 5, and is still published under that name today.

      The Collection publishes the results of scientific research on certain issues, thematic and regional studies, reports from conferences, results of work on larger projects, magisterial theses.

      The first volumes of the Collection saw the publication of results of the research of settlements and the origins of populations, folk life, customs and folklore, which were part of the goals and research program when the Institute was founded. The research was conducted by the anthropogeographic, ethnological and folkloristic department of the Institute. A large number of papers refers to the topic of the folklore of the People’s liberation War, and are the result of systematic gathering and study of partisan folk poetry in Serbian and the languages of national minorities in the period between 1947 and 1949.

      The results of the work conducted as part of projects spanning several years which were contracted by the Republic Community of Science of Serbia, and later the Ministry of Science of the Republic of Serbia are the topics of several volumes of the Collection: The study and research into the settlements endangered by large public infrastructural works were published in volumes 6-8 (1873/1976) under the title Ethnological studies of Djerdap settlements. At the time of the Djerdap research the studies of national minorities (Slovaks, Rusyns and Ukrainians) in Vojvodina and Serbs in diaspora in the Romanian settlement Svinjica was initiated, and the results were published in the 5th volume of the Collection;Stаlno prаćenje promenа u nаrodnoj kulturi nа selu [The Continuing Monitoring of Changes in Rural Folk Culture] (1971–1975) in volume 10 of the Collection (1980); the three-volume issue 14-16 (1984)Stаlno prаćenje promenа u nаrodnoj kulturi – preobrаžаj prigrаdskih nаseljа [The Continuing Monitoring of Changes in Folk Culture – the Transformation of Suburban Settlements] (1976–1980) dealt with the study of changes in the culture of living, marriage and family and customs and rites of passage in suburban and other settlements in the vicinity of Belgrade, Krusevac, Leskovac, Pirot and Novi Pazar.
