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> Riikka Patrikainen Copyright (c) 2023 2023-12-30 2023-12-30 52 3 129–153 129–153 10.3986/Traditio2023520306 Introduction: The (In)visibility of Multi-locality in Theory and Practice <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. In this context, the author also addresses the issue of the visibility of multi-locality, both in the realm of theory as well as in the sphere of practice.</p> Tatiana Bajuk Senčar Copyright (c) 2023 2023-12-30 2023-12-30 52 3 7–22 7–22 10.3986/Traditio2023520301 Home(s), Mobility Patterns, and Identifications of Multi-local Sofia Residents <p>This study focuses on Bulgarians who, due to factors such as work flexibilization and the COVID-19 pandemic, live in two (or more) places, exploring how their lifestyle notions and cultural interests shape the way they manage their social worlds and everyday lives. The aim of the research is to identify the respondents’ characteristic patterns of dwelling, perceptions of home(s), and the relationship between these and their local and other territorial identifications.</p> Tanya Matanova Copyright (c) 2023 2023-12-30 2023-12-30 52 3 23–46 23–46 10.3986/Traditio2023520302 Multi-local Actors of Change and Two Religious Sites in Northeast Bulgaria: Between Traditions and New Everyday Practices <p>The article analyses the correlations between the two rural religious sites – Akyazılı Baba Tekke (village of Obrochishte) and ‘St. Dimitar’ church (village of Gurkovo) in Northeast Bulgaria – and the multi-local actors of change that contribute to the transformation of local communities’ traditions and the emergence of new everyday practices.

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> Lena Greinke Copyright (c) 2023 2023-12-30 2023-12-30 52 3 71–97 71–97 10.3986/Traditio2023520304 Multi-local Living in Mazowieckie Province: Specificity and Universality of an Underestimated Phenomenon <p>This article examines the practices of multilocal residents of the Mazovian Voivodship. The research focuses on spatiotemporal arrangements, motives, activities, and the perceived influence of multilocal living arrangements. Analyses are based on selected materials obtained from semi-structured, problem-oriented interviews, which were conducted in 2022 as part of the preliminary research (n=11), and an online survey on a representative group of inhabitants of Mazovian Voivodship (n=996).</p> Barbara Dominika Jaczewska Copyright (c) 2023 2023-12-30 2023-12-30 52 3 99–125 99–125 10.3986/Traditio2023520305
