The author in this paper discusses articles written on Sinjska Alka in the period from the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th until the present day. Since this paper was mostly re-written from her MA thesis, in the introductory paragraph the author outlines the background of her interest in Sinjska Alka as the topic of her research.
The research on the durability of Sinjska Alka, the relationship between tradition in modernity embedded in it and its role in the construction of the identity of the population of the region of Cetinska Krajina have brought the author to the conclusion that the image and the perception of Alka in different historical and political moments of its’ 300 years long existence, was significantly determined by the character of its media coverage. The author has divided written contributions on Alka according to the periods of their publication partially linking the ways in which Alka was represented with different historical-political and social-cultural contexts at the moment of their appearance. She also analyzed ethnological articles written on the subject, seeing them as a staring point for a more professional approach to this topic.
