FOLK AND NON-FOLK: QUESTIONING THE DICHOTOMY

Abstract

What a dichotomy: Folk and non-folk! Loukika fact has become aloukika fiction and vise versa. The folk and tribe are colonially (either internal or external) created categories that surrogate history and physiology and metanarratives born. Reporting of academic tribes helps governmentality. Docile bodies are penetrated with anatomo-bio-political tools of disciplinary technology. The differance between folk-art/songs/plays and classical -art/songs/plays has become blurred if the nature of sponsorship is considered. Thus political economy of such dividing practices (folk and non-folk, tribe and non-tribe) was also investigated.
