By the opportunity of joining European Union, the authoress deals with the cultural identity and cultural heritage from the point of view of ethnology. According to her premise the traditional folk culture is considered to be a part of the national culture and as this it helps to constitute the cultural heritage of Slovakia. In the same time (as a fragment of the cultural memory) it interferes with a considerable part of the cultural identity and consciousness of the individual, communities and nation. In ethnographical and folkloristic areas she is looking for the answer to the question, what should be considered as cutural heritage and what are the possibilities of Slovakia to present it in the framework of ongoing processes of globalisation of European and world culture.
