FEFU will discuss the history of Russian emigration

The international scientific conference "Vladivostok - the point of return: the past and present of the Russian emigration" opened on October 6 at the Far Eastern Federal University, the press service of the FEFU reported. On the campus on about. Historians of the Far East and the central regions of the country, representatives of houses of the Russian diaspora, descendants of emigrants who were forced to leave their homeland after the Civil War met in Russian. The conference is hosted by the FEFU School of Humanities in cooperation with the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the state archives of Primorye and the Far East, the Primorsky Metropolitanate of the Russian Orthodox Church.

The participants of the meeting were welcomed by Felix Azhimov, Director of the School of Humanitarian Studies of the FEFU. He stressed that the Federal University for the first time is holding such a large-scale conference dedicated to Russian emigration in the Asia-Pacific region. It was preceded by a long correspondence of historians of the FEFU with representatives of the Russian diaspora and descendants of emigrants in different countries.

Svetlana Dudaryonok, head of the department of Russian history and archives of FEFU, said that the idea to hold a meeting devoted to Russian emigration arose two years ago, following the results of the International Scientific Conference "Civil War and Military Intervention in the Russian Far East: Lessons and Histories", which was timed to coincide with the 90 anniversary of the end of hostilities in 1922.

Civil war in the Far East went much longer than in the central regions of the country, and its termination here had a special significance. After 1922, many residents of Vladivostok, including intellectuals and scientists, were forced to leave their homeland and go to China, Korea, Japan, the United States and Australia. The life of natives of the former Russian Empire worries many hearts - it is interesting and dramatic, and this page of our history needs to be actively studied, - said Svetlana Dudaryonok. - The fact that our conference attracted more 150 scientists and descendants of emigrants, speaks of a great interest in it. The topic of emigration is a priority for the Department of National History and Archives of the FEFU, and we plan to create a Center for the Study of Russian Emigration on our base.

During the three-day conference, scientists often recall that among the people who left the country after 1922, there were many teachers of the State Far Eastern University (now FEFU). They were scattered all over the world - in China, Korea, Japan, the United States, Australia - where, after emigration, they continued their teaching and research activities. The exhibition "Vladivostok - the point of return: past and present of the Russian emigration", which also opened on 6 October in the FEFU Educational and Scientific Museum, is dedicated to them.
