Abstract: In this article we outline the traditional position, however under discussion, of the study matter of folklore and popular culture. It is arguable that in both fields of study quite often the same discourse is being used, namely as far as views on representation and authenticity (and the opposite such as commercializing and folklorizing) are concerned. The term appropriation makes it possible to fit in both fields of study in the same linguistic usage which keeps an eye on creative consumption of present time folk culture and mass culture.
