Folkloristics and Applied Heritage Studies at University of Tartu

As more states worldwide join the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage, the need grows for specialists capable of analysing cultural heritage and using it responsibly as a social and economic resource. Of vital importance for developing such competencies are folkloristic theories of tradition, performance and expressive culture. The programme provides students with knowledge, skills and attitudes to:
 

  • unpack the process of heritage production and the workings of tradition in the context of cultural diversity and change
  • act as a mediator between different interest groups in the field of intangible cultural heritage
  • recognise and ethically apply cultural heritage as a resource in the public and non-governmental sectors, crafts, product design, tourism and various other areas of life

 

Students can specialise in either folklore and heritage analysis or craft studies.
