Коммеморация исторических событий как инструмент символической политики: возможности сравнительного анализа

The article considers the methodological problems of comparative studies of commemorations of historical events, as one of the most important practices of the politics of memory. Commemoration is interpreted as public acts of remembrance and (re)interpretation of historical figures and events in the contemporary context. The author summarizes the existing approaches to study of commemorations and proposes a more comprehensive methodology. It combines the analysis of strategies of mnemonic actors with comparing the structures of their historical narratives, and the assessment of potential effects of their commemorative practices for transformation of the social and cultural infrastructure of memory about the commemorated event.
