COLLECTIVIZATION OF AGRICULTURE IN SLOVAKIA AS A SUBJECT OF ETHNOLOGICAL AND MUSEOLOGICAL RESEARCH IN THE 1950's (HISTORICAL/CULTURAL CONTEXT) (Kolektivizacia polnohospodarstva na Slovensku ako predmet etnologickeho a muzeologickeho vyskumu v 50. rok
This study presents an ethnological reflection on the process of collectivization of the agriculture in Slovakia. The collectivization process represented a significant discontinuity in the way of life of the rural population that could not have been overlooked by the social sciences (ethnology and museology). However, the problem that both disciplines had been facing at that time was that they had not been involved primarily with that which is considered to be the substance of social science, that is, the search for new knowledge about the society in all of its aspects, but they were also under an ideological influence of the political elites. This is especially valid for the first stage of collectivization.
