Announcement

In 2023, the following thematic headings are planned for publication

in the "Oriental Institute Journal":   

2023 №1 (Deadline: 29.01.2023)

Thematic heading: "Monograph by S.M. Shirokogoroff "Ethnos: Research on the Basic Principles of Change in Ethnic and Ethnographic Phenomena" and its significance for modern science" 

It is indicative that the problem of ethnos was raised in Russia at the turn of the 19th-20th centuries. S.M. Shirokogoroff was the first who formulated theoretical foundations of the phenomenon of ethnos in Vladivostok in 1922-1923. At this stage of his research, the primary importance in the elaboration of the problem belongs to his monograph published in Shanghai in 1923 under title of “Ethnos: Research on the Basic Principles of Change in Ethnic and Ethnographic Phenomena”. Various political upheavals and unpreparedness of his colleagues did not allow this work to take its rightful place in science that it certainly deserves. Attempts to ignore S.M. Shirokogorov's ideas have only led to the fact that at the beginning of 21st century, foreign science has abandoned the idea of ethnos (ethnicity). It is not coincidental that S.M. Shirokogorov's theory receives ongoing powerful attacks in order to discredit its significance. These attempts are undertaken in the general context of the "canceling" of Russia that also includes “canceling” of the achievements of Russian scientists. Meanwhile, S.M. Shirokogorov's theory relies on systemic principles and a multidisciplinary approach. It is for that reason that its main provisions have not lost their relevance and represent an important contribution not only to Russian, but also to world ethnology/anthropology. Therefore, it is a matter of honor for our Journal to discuss the significance of the monograph “Ethnos...” (1923), which was presented as a Separate Extract from Vol. IXVII of the Oriental Institute Journal of the Far Eastern University.

2023 №2 (Deadline: 30.04.2023)

Thematic heading: "Asian and Latin American migrants in the USA and Canada: the experience of collective adaptation and integration" 

Migration processes in North America for many decades have been characterized by the dominance of incoming migration to this region. Today, this continent is home to over 59 million migrants from all over the world. The largest group is made up of people from Latin America, followed by people from Asia. Over the past 30 years, the number of migrants in North America as a result of emigration from Latin America and Asia has more than doubled, which is determined by the attractiveness of the North American region, which is characterized by a high level of political stability and economic growth. In the announced thematic heading, it is proposed to recreate a retrospective of the immigration policy and acculturation experience of the countries of North America in the Asian and Hispanic aspect, to trace the history of the integration of Asian and Hispanic Americans into the host societies of the United States and Canada.
