Urban ethnological themes in museums
<p>Urban ethnology does not occupy an exactly defined place of its own in Slovene museums. Selected themes are rather the result of initiatives from individuals than of a carefully elaborated programme policy. An appeal to institutionalise the field of urban ethnology in museums too therefore seems to be quite necessary.</p>
A network of regional open-air museums in Slovenia
<p>The article presents a chronology of initiatives related to the establishment of openair museums in Slovenia and links them to the persisting demands of the ethnological discipline for a central ethnological museum in premises of its own. The author introduces us to the project "Network of Open-Air Museums in Slovenia", arguing that the expert and operational running of open-air museums should he directed try the Slovene Ethnographic Museum. </p>
