This volume is the result of research supported by the National Research Council (CNCS) Romania, which financed the project Reperspectivarea documentului etnofolcloric (New Perspectives on Ethno-Folkloric Documents), carried out between 2009 and 2011. The research topic is the Archive of the Folklore Society from the Faculty of Letters, Babeş-Bolyai University, Cluj, Romania. The contributors to this volume propose a reflexive reading of the archival fund – a lieu de mémoire, in Pierre Nora’s terms (Nora, 1984; Nora, 1989). The Cluj Archive of the Folklore Society functioned between 1958 and 1993, a period that overlapped with communism, spanning also the first years after the fall of this political regime. Its documentary fund comprises field notes that reveal a selection of the research themes proposed by ethnologists at a national level. Its main achievements are: the systematic research of the Romanian folklore, the archival preservation of the field notes and the students’ initiation in fieldwork.
