Ildikó Sándor, PhD


After graduating with a Ma in Hungarian Ethnography (1990) and a PhD (2002), I became a member of the House of Traditions.

My main areas of expertise in ethnography are folk customs, folk poetry, and above all children's folklore and folk games. In addition to ethnography, the modernization of folk traditions and the methodology of handing over the traditions are also involved in theory and practice: since 1988 I have been leading the Kőketánc Children's Dance Center (Marczibányi Square Cultural Center).

I also deal intensively with the ethnographic education of adults and the younger age group: as the brainchild of the "Forgószél és Garabonciás" study competition, as a regular contributor to the INFORádió Arena, author of ethnographic books and studies.
