The analysis is based on anthropological and folkloristic performance-oriented research. The situational communication with and about laments, especially the process of negotiating an appropriate performance, proved to be a fruitful source of knowledge about the local lament genre. It is argued that the role of musical features of performance, such as the tempo of singing, could be established as prominent in the process of constructing the local genre of the death lament in the interviews.</p> 2023-12-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Introduction: The (In)visibility of Multi-locality in Theory and Practice 2023-12-18T10:09:09+01:00 Tatiana Bajuk Senčar <p>This article maps out multi-locality as an interdisciplinary field of study and presents the state of current research on multi-locality in Slovenia, including a brief discussion of the author’s own research.

The COVID-19 pandemic affected students by abruptly establishing new forms of learning (e.g., virtual classes). A quantitative survey of students from Leibniz University Hanover was conducted during the pandemic in 2020. The survey showed that 78 percent of students live multi-locally and that the pandemic considerably influences students’ multi-local lifestyles.</p> 2023-12-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Multi-local Living in Mazowieckie Province: Specificity and Universality of an Underestimated Phenomenon 2023-06-06T10:44:09+02:00 Barbara Dominika Jaczewska <p>This article examines the practices of multilocal residents of the Mazovian Voivodship.
