Editorial
Summary


The special issue of Journal of Ethnology 5/2013 presents an overview of the professional production of Czech ethnology. In her study (Moving Beyond Borders: Vráz, Frič and Kořenský), Barbora Půtová introduces three hitherto non-acclaimed Czech travellers – E. S. Vráz (1860–1932), A. V. Frič (1882–1944), J. Kořenský (1847–1938) –  who crossed the borders between Europeans and  the„exotic“ world. Stanislav Brouček submits his knowledge from the long-term research of personal testimonies of Czech expatriates living in South Africa (On Reflection of the Past in Memory. Czechs in the Republic of South Africa). Martina Pavlicová together with Lucie Uhlíková focus on the function of folklore and folk traditions in Czech environment in the period of the totalitarian regime (Folklore Movement and its Function in the Totalitarian Society /on an example of the Czech Republic in the 2nd half of the 20th century). Martin Šimša devotes himself to the origin of a selected type of male trousers in folk dress (Long Woollen Cloth Trousers – Medieval Heritage or Carpathian Attribution of Shepherd Culture?)  Petr Janeček acquaints the readers with the anthropological phenomenon of play significantly touching upon the culture of children (Current Studies of Games and Plays in the Czech Republic).

Material column publishes two contributions: Hana Dvořáková submits the knowledge of ethnologist František Pospíšil (1885–1958) from the research of children’s string games (String Games in František Pospíšil´s Photo Documentation) and Eva Románková explains the principles of the protection of traditional folk culture in the Czech Republic and its collaboration with the UNESCO (Czech Traditional Culture and the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity). The Journal publishes also reports about the activities of Czech ethnologic community and introduces the structure of this branch in the Czech Republic.
