Ab Imperio editors are pleased to announce the release of the third issue of AI in 2002. Ab Imperio is a bilingual (English Russian) journal dedicated to the study of nationalism, nationalities and empire in the post Soviet realm. Materials of this issue written from different disciplinary perspectives (theory, history, sociology, political science, anthropology) address the theme of "RUSSIAN SOCIETY: STRUCTURES AND CULTURES" (see below the Table of Contents). The issue features a roundtable on the most dynamic trend in scholarship on Soviet history ¨C the linguistic and cultural turn in studies of Soviet subjectivity. It also continues the long term project of Ab Imperio ¡°The State of Art in History Writing on Empire and Nation¡± dedicated to review of national historiographies and the role of history in identity formation of the post soviet societies.
Following a major restructuring, AI is published with a new publisher and features a new website. We expect to accomplish our thematic program for 2002 shortly and have already started work on the issues of 2003.
For submissions or subscription, please, contact the editors via email.
