Contemporary Ethnographic Community of Belarus: The Case of Inventory of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Methodological Aspectl
The text is devoted to the question of the crisis in Belarusian academic community. The case study is based on the Inventory of Belarusian Intangible Heritage and the attempts of the representatives of Belarusian ethnography school to carry out social identification. Institutional uncertainty, quest for self-identification in the community and overall panic are caused by the fracture of the cultural field, where the academic community used to exist, and the failure of the Soviet-Belarusian academic project. This overall methodological uncertainty, which makes up the background for the emerging of the Inventory project, had become the foundation of the article.
The work at the creation of the Inventory of Belarusian Intangible Heritage raises the question of its methodological basis. In our opinion, one of the determining trends should be methodologically grounded interdisciplinarity.
