The XVI scientific conference of department of a source study and auxiliary historical disciplines of Historical and archival institute

B.A. Ants and. Dobrovolsky, R.B. Kazakov


On January 30 — 31, 2004 at Historical and archival institute the sixteenth took place next, a conference -

felts of a source study and auxiliary historical disciplines, devoted to memory of professor of department Vladimir Vasilyevich Kabanov who died in 2002. The relationship of the people and the power considered in source study aspect became a conference perspective, according to its scientific interests and a perspective of its works. Considerable attention was paid to also extraordinary figure of the V.V. Kabanov - the friend and the colleague, the adherent and the teacher and also the opponent on defense of a thesis of many of conferees.

The first of the problems submitted for discussion — "Modernization processes and the crisis phenomena in the history of the country" — reflects V.V. Kabanov's interest in ambiguous and contradictory process of change of public ways, transformations of society, transition from traditional to modern type of social structure. Changes such, on the one hand, leave an essential mark on destinies and the countries in general, and each certain person, and with another — cardinal changes in structure of the case of historical sources inevitably involve that allows to make large-scale historical tragedies a subject not only emotional experience, but also a scientific reflection which severity is distinctive feature of all works which came out from under V.V. Kabanov's feather.

A formulation of the second problem — "The Russian peasantry as a sociocultural phenomenon" — only at first sight seems exclusively modern, bearing on itself a distinct print of language science of the 90th. The shape (in every sense this word) the Russian peasant was studied not one decade in the Sector of history of agriculture and the peasantry of the USSR (and in other Departments and sectors of Institute of history of RAS) — in research team which integral part was V.V. Kabanov. The appeal of new generations of researchers to a perspective of behavioural characteristics of the peasantry and its regional specifics developing and deepening traditions of studying agrarian history confirms efficiency of the this direction having — in addition — broad interdistsiplinarny prospect.

The third problem — "Consciousness of the people: problems interpre-

>" — it is represented to a tation of sources natural continuation by the second because with falling of the ideological restrictions compelling historians to consider "mass consciousness" only within social determinancy, the impossibility of comprehension of public structure without reconstruction of consciousness of the people making it became obvious.

The fourth ("Power and society: monologues or dialogues") and the fifth ("Person, earth and work: a method of auxiliary historical disciplines in their research") problems also naturally follow from understanding of problems of a conference because concern tools and ways of realization of consciousness of the people, those sources in which equally successful social dialogue was embodied not always.

In the first, memorial, parts of a plenary session of a conference were heard V.L. Telitsyn, I.L. Belenky and L.A. Molchanov's reports which authors focused on V.V. Kabanov's identity and features of his scientific way. All acting emphasized independence of the judgments of the researcher always leaning on carefully built source study base and also eccentricity of the language which was quite often going beyond the standard academic norm but always serving as the exact instrument of expression of a strict and thorough thought. R.B. Kazakov in the performance presented a bright portrait of V.V. Kabanov eyes of the student of the end of the 80th, having noted demand of special and uchebnometodichesky works of the researcher as new generations of young specialists. A.E. Ivanov and N.A. Ivnitsky performed with bright memories of the colleague.

The second, scientific, a part of a plenary session consisted of the special reports opening the relations of the people and the power in Russia in historical prospect from XVI in beginning 20th centuries. Results of the researches were presented by E.N. Shveykovs-kaya, A.I. Komissarenko and V.P. Buldakov.

At meetings of five sections it was heard almost pyatide-sit reports (in total the Organizing committee received about one hundred materials: theses of plenary performances and messages at meetings of sections). The circle of participants represented various scientific centers of Russia. Besides the researchers who are traditionally actively supporting a conference from ve-

the blowing academic organizations and higher education institutions of Moscow also "delegations" from Stavropol and Nizhny Novgorod were allocated. Such variety of structure allowed to be volume idea of the modern level of study of the problems submitted for discussion.

The meeting of a round table "Student teaching of a modern source study" became completion of a conference - and at the same time determination of prospects and reference points of the humanity of the future-.

The report on the concept of the course "Theory and Methodology of History" on it was made by O.M. Medushevskaya. The course includes three components: the theoretical, proving provisions stories as science where the researcher studies specific configurations of the intellectual products "packed" in this information space; science history where this scientific discipline is put in a modern context of science, the methodology allowing to create works which give the new historical knowledge proved and entered in the system of knowledge is built; representation of process of creation of an intellectual product, i.e. the new scientific knowledge - checked, proved output.

M.F. Rumyantseva in the report proved the ideas of moral and ethical and epistemo-logical making in training of the historian-istochnikoveda. The type of outlook is found in a way of source study thinking of the historian which, in turn, causes extent of awareness by it of its moral responsibility for result of scientific historical research. Vocational training in the higher education system istori-istochnikoveda, capable to comprehend relevant sociocultural tasks in the sphere of humanitarian knowledge and social practice and to offer methods of their decision, has to focus attention not only on epistemo-logical, but also on an ethical component of outlook and professional activity.

S.O. Schmidt, S.M. Kashtanov, E.N. Shvey-kovskaya, A.A. Kurenyshev, S.I. Malovichko, G.N. Savelyeva took part in discussion of reports of O.M. Medushevskaya and M.F. Rumyantseva.
