Languages of publication



This paper focuses on analysis of the main tendencies in academic research of Eurasianist movement during the period from the dissolution of the Soviet Union to the present day. It particularly focuses on transformations of discourse formulated within the terms of extensive secondary literature devoted to inter-war Eurasianism, present-day neo-Eurasianism and also the thoughts of Soviet historian and ethnologist Lev Nikolajevič Gumiljov (1912–1992). On the basis of thorough comparison of the submitted information it was possible to observe several marked shifts, particularly in evaluation of the relationship between leading representatives of the inter-war Eurasianist movement, the works of L. N. Gumiljov and the present-day activities of Aleksander Dugin (*1962). This article is supplemented by a case study based on analysis of archive material from the Slavonic library and related primary literature. This paper describes the efforts of A. Dugin to artificially reinforce the continuity between Eurasianism and neo-Eurasianism and also its influence on formation of academic discourse in the research of the specific issue.
