This book deals with the relationship between tradition and modernity and
the modernness of objectifying, representing and studying folklore and
oral traditions. The first section focuses on modern and tradition as modern
concepts, and the conception of folklore and its study as a modern trajectory.
The second section discusses the politics of folklore with regard to
nationalism, and the role of folk tradition in the production of nation-state
identity in Finland.
