Plenary Meeting of the Russian Society of Historians and Archivists in Ekaterinburg, September 26, 2017: Information


The information on the last plenary meeting of the All-Russian public organization ‘Russian Society of Historians and Archivists’ (ROIA) includes report and official documentation. The report and discussion of the ROIA plenary meeting participants remarked that the events of interest are in complete congruence with the profile of the ROIA activities as a non-profit-making organization, active on both federal level and on the level of its regional offices in over 70 subjects of the Russian Federation. Of particular importance are interactions of the ROIA with the Federal Archival Agency and regional directorates for archiving and their subordinate institutions. Methodological focus of the ROIA projects is connected with tasks of identification, summation, introduction into scientific use, and popularization of archival documents on the Russian history. The ROIA activities ascertain results and prospects of new documents (especially, those of personal provenance) acquisition in the state archives and bring little-known documents to light. The ROIA gave coverage to results of work on the project ‘Revolution of 1917 in archival documents.’ Together with the Russian Military Historical Society and Association of Scholars in Soviet Society and Contemporary History, it participated in the contest of research and creative work ‘Russia: The memory space: The 20th century.’ To support the scientific research and educational project ‘Historical document heritage on the history of the Republic of Crimes and Sebastopol,’ a presidential grant was obtained. The ROIA seeks cooperation of the National Association of Russian Border Troops Veterans. The ROIA was one of the winners in the 2nd Grant Contest of the ‘History of the Motherland’ foundation with its exhibition project ‘Revolution of 1917 in the Moscow streets: Documents and photographs.’
