Sodobne povedke: razmišljanje o »najbolj sodobnem« žanru pripovedne folklore<br>Contemporary Legends: A Reflection about the »Most Contemporary« Genre of Folk Narrative Research</br>
AbstractContemporary legends are an important part of the contemporary folk narrative repertoire and can provide us with vital information on processes in modern day society and culture. They are frequently defined as an account of an unlikely event considered as factual. The content of these stories is often placed in the modern social and cultural reality. They reflect people’s attitude towards the current situation and the changes in their environment. Although traditional motifs can be recognised in contemporary legends, their context is influenced by the “modernity”. In the paper a couple of stories with their interpretations are presented, gathered in the Slovenian town of Velenje.
