Zbiranje življenjskih zgodb v slovenski etnologiji
<p>The article deals with the use of the (auto)biographical method in Slovene ethnology , focusing on authors who collect and analyse life stories in a manner which makes the contents of the stories the subject of the research, not just the research method.

Ljudsko zdravilstvo v Prekmurju
<p>The article describes people`s attitude to health, illness and death in the individual periods of the development of the human mind.

Folk medicine has a long tradition in Prekmurje and was especially important for the health of people in the past.</p>

Zagovori - magične korenine medicine
<p>Incantations are the most archaic element in the treasury of folk medical knowledge and no other element is vanishing so fast. Some decades ago incantations were used in folk medicine by only 15% of the Slovenes, while the other practises of folk medicine were based on traditional and empirical knowledge about the curative effects of active substances of plant and animal origin.

<p>The article searches for a more complex explanation of the agricultural symbolism of the Zoque Indians, based on a comparative analysis of the concept of human body, especially of its blood and its magical therapeutic function, the fertility ritual of the "Three Virgins of Copoya" and the myth about the "Volcano" woman. The article is based on two separate researches among the Zoques of Chiapas, which the author carried out in the villages of Pantepec and Copoya, and in the town of Tuxtla Gutiérrez between 1990 and in 1997.</p>
Ali so metode alternativne medicine v Sloveniji res nekaj povsem novega?

Etnologija, etnografija ali narodopisje
<p>The article presents a survey of the problems ethnologists and anthropologists encounter in libraries, and briefly presents some particularities of specialist ethnological terminology as well as different views on keywording with an emphasis on user-aimed keywords. The same issues are also elucidated by a survey held among ethnologists and non-ethnologists, by questions put forward by the users of the University Library in Maribor, and by a comparison of keywords used by individual libraries for keywording ethnological material.</p>
Gradivo o ljudski medicini v zapisih terenskih ekip Slovenskega etnografskega muzeja
<p>The article brings a survey of the material on folk medicine, which was collected by the field teams of the Slovene Ethnographic Museum and their collaborators between 1948 and 1984. Most of it originates from Dolenjska, Primorska, Štajerska, and Notranjska. The article introduces the reader to the hardly known material on folk medicine, which is kept by the Documentation Department of the Slovene Ethnographic Museum, and which is largely in the form of type-written copies of field notes.
Ponemčiti so jih hoteli
<p>Based on documentary material the article presents the memories of the 1941-1945 period, related by three inhabitants of the village of Koritno. These are memories of their childhood and the harsher their childhood was, the more memories they have. To date several memoirs have been published on life in exile, but they are mainly memories of people`s life in concentration camps. However, some people were not only expelled, but also forcibly germanized, while others, who stayed behind, were in constant fear of being expelled.
