История российской провинции в мемориальной культуре: политическое конструирование.
This article seems to look at the practices of memory culture in contemporary Russian province. With the gradual deterioration of the socio-economic situation, it is the province most vulnerable space in terms of social and political stability. Provincial political elites are beginning to experience a shortage of meaning, which ultimately affects their legitimacy. Power refers to the narratives, allowing to provide a broad social consensus. Such narratives are present in the Russian and Soviet history, which immediately contribute to their actualization in commemoration of new practices. The author is convinced that well designed memorial space in contemporary Russian province can give the ruling elite additional opportunities for political legitimacy.
