Cultural memory of Russia in the context of migration challenges: the relevance of philosophy of culture
Abstract.This article is dedicated to identification of the basic risks of transformation of the cultural memory of Russian in the context of migration challenges. It is demonstrated that the intensification of migration processes and Russia’s turning into an immigration country cause a number of economic, demographic, criminogenic, sociocultural and political challenges. The article analyzes the risks of transformation of Russia’s cultural memory in the situation of migration processes at the communicative constitutional and value levels. The author examines the peculiarities of challenges of hybridization of cultural memory and identity of Russia generated by the migration processes. The possibilities of use of the concept of “hybrid identity” applicable to Russia’s cultural memory are analyzed on the basis of the constructivist interpretation of identity and culture in the works of C. Geertz, R. Brubaker, and J. Straub. The author underlines the important role of the philosophy of culture as the means for theoretical comprehension and development of the model of transformation of the cultural memory of Russia in the context of migration challenges. A conclusion is made that the contradictions generated by the migration processes overlap the incompleteness of transformation of Russia’s cultural identity. The thought is substantiated that the key challenge for Russia’s cultural memory is the hybridization of the forms of identity. At the same time, Russia’s cultural memory itself is not uniform and static. Leaning of the analysis of the major carriers of cultural memory, the author concludes on the dynamic character of its boundaries. The article substantiates the basic worldview milestones and conditions for reaching universal agreement in cultural memory of the migrants and the accepting society.
