The Fifth International Research Conference
Russian Academy of Sciences – Saint Petersburg State University
(October 3-6, 2018)
The main objectives of the Conference:
Though topographical representation of national culture is nowadays quite common in the field of Humanities (the methods of exposing of geographical borders national cultures are drawn up, is theories of “cultural borders” are elaborated and imagology is actively developing), borderline is usually regarded as a characteristic of some territory possessing distinct outlines.
The research group brought together by this project takes into consideration multifactor influence upon the contents of culture and sees in the interaction of different cultures not only frontier zones (marginal and containing elements of two and more interacting cultures) but also exclusion zones of cultural suppression whose importance for interacting cultures becomes rather questionable.
