CONTEMPORARY NOMADISM AND REVIVAL OF COMMUNITY LIFE

Assoc. Prof. Jana Waldnerová, PhD., Assoc. Prof. Viera Jakubovská, PhD.

ABSTRACT

The text focuses on the problem of contemporary nomadism, which can be observed in a variety of forms in our culture and everyday life too, in its relation to the revival of cultural life. It aims at introducing causes, sources, representation, forms, and consequences of contemporary nomadism in our culture. We shall combine the contemporary representation of nomadism and pay our attention to new forms of community life, which have their base in the fellowship, rootedness and self-fullfilment of individuals. The text deals also with the new communicative concept of community, which is dynamic, creative and innovative. The community will be understood as an open phenomenon that is oriented not only to its preservation but also to its creation and reproduction, which is willingly constructed within the process of social communication.
