The paper explores the function of feuilletonistic discourse in the work of Mijo Mirković/Mate Balota (1898–1963). We analyzed the communication aspect of popular non-fictional genres in the processes of construction of identities and promotion of ideologies, and their nation-integration and cultural function in Croatian cultural history. Our analysis has shown that the author’s intention, when writing the feuilletons Istria is Changing (published in the journal of Istrian emigrants „Istra“, Zagreb, in 1937 and 1938), was to document cultural transformations and processes of denationalization during fascist occupation.
