Russia and Africa: a History of the Formation of Mutual Perceptions


 This issue is prepared by joint efforts of the Center for African Studies (Institute of World History, Russian Academy of Sciences) and our colleagues and is based on the reports presented at the international conference “Russia and Africa: History of Mutual Representations”, which was organized in Moscow on October, 8—9, 2015 as part of research project “Africa in the Destiny of Russia, Russia in the Destiny of Africa”. We fully realized that the conference can not cover all the aspects of such large and important theme as mutual representations of the peoples from African continent and the peoples of Russia in its historical development. The preparatory activities confirmed that following substantial limitation of bilateral contacts we feel obvious lack of professional researchers dealing with these themes. Thus we formulated an important task both for the grant research and conference preparation as the first step to realize the research — to look for new talented persons and to enhance the chronology and problematic of the theme.
