The 9th International conference of Young Folklorists invites scholars to investigate the current stage of folkloristics. Although researchers have raised this issue for several decades already, it is still relevant. Different local tendencies or research traditions enrich and widen the scope of the discipline. We do not question the necessity of folkloristics and its research methods in the 21st century. However, constant emphasizing of interdisciplinarity and marginalities leaves one pondering about the situation in the centre of the discipline. What is the focus of folkloristics today? Are classifications and genres still relevant, or are we already dealing with completely new cultural phenomena that do not necessarily comply with the classical approach? How can balance between classical and innovative research methods help us understand the human ways? What problems or destinations can we gain form interdisciplinary research practices? Is it possible already to define old and new schools in folklore research?
