Shapovalova N.V. - Crimean War in the creative works of veterans of 1812 (based on the oeuvres of P. A. Vyazemsky and F. N. Glinka) pp. 12-19


Abstract: The subject of this article is the poetry of the Russian authors, veterans of Patriotic War 1812 – Pyotr Andreyevich Vyazemsky and Fyodor Nikolaevich Glinka dedicated to the Crimean War and Siege of Sevastopol in 1854-1855. The analysis of their poems created over the period of 1853-1967 is conducted. They touch upon various topics: glorification of heroes and military commanders, military operations in Caucasus, bombardment of Odessa, siege of Sevastopol, perception of Crimean war as religious war, satirical reviews of military operations of the allies, etc. The article also examines the question of comprehension of the Crimean War by Russian society through the prism of the historical experience of 1812. Methodological foundation contains the principle of historical cognition: objectivity and historicism. The author applies the comparative-historical methods: poetry is viewed on the background of publicist works and literary process of the era in general. Reference to fiction predetermined the use of interdisciplinary methods from the arsenal of philology and literature studies, particularly textological methods and structural analysis. The work h reveals the main motifs reflected in the creative works of F. N. Glinka and P. A. Vyazemsky, as their assessment of the events of Crimean War as the representatives of generation of 1812 was not the subject of research. Their poems fit into the extensive palette of national culture of the mid XIX century, emphasizing their importance for personal perception, as well as testimony to the era. Special attention is given to the oeuvres that express the forming historical memory regarding the siege of Sevastopol during the Crimean War.

Sannikov S. - Conceptual approaches to examination of the phenomenon of power in semiotics of culture: retrospective methodological overview pp. 20-29


Abstract: This article attempts to fill the gap associated with the insufficient knowledge on the existing approaches to examination of the phenomenon of power within the framework of semiotics of culture. The subject of the research is the cognitive problems of examination of the phenomenon of power in the works of representatives of the Western European School of semiotics of culture and relevant conceptual approaches to their solution. The object is the oeuvres of the classics specialized in semiotics of culture (semiology) of the XX century: E. Cassirer, R. Barthes, M. Foucault, J. Derrida, G. Deleuze, and J. Baudrillard. Methodological pivot from the positivist paradigm, within the framework of which “power” was studies as a political legal institution, towards postmodernist interpretation of power as a global system of the formation of reality, category of knowledge, and overall subordination to the discursive practices led to substantial expansion of methodological boundaries of the studies of the phenomenon of power. Power becomes an object of research in the context of broad range of disciplines, such as philosophy, history, sociology, linguistics, political anthropology, and culturology. In the conditions of such significant disciplinary diversity, special meaning attains the semiotics of culture as a methodological foundation for further disciplinary synthesis. The conducted analysis allowed detecting the key cognitive issues in examination of the phenomenon of power within the framework of the oeuvres of the indicated authors, and specify the relevant conceptual approaches to their solution. The result explicated the methodological prerequisites for emergence of the modern discipline of the semiotics of culture, which is capable of becoming a theoretical foundation for further analysis of the semiotic algorithms of power relations.

Egorov S. - The rejection of historical myth as the basis of identity (on the example of Soviet Protestants) pp. 30-39

The conduction analysis demonstrates that the refection of negative myths was and remains to be one of the key components of the identity policy of the Russian Protestants.
