Annotation
A historian in a provincial university needs to broaden sphere of his professional interest into the neighboring domains and even other disciplines (i.e., political science, international relations, sociology, sometimes philology or literature). The reason behind such development lies in a sense of shortage of professional communication. Local authorities push historians to the participation in local identity construction that put historians of the region above those studying universal history in terms of resource allocation. Search for the support outside his own university or region make regional historian interested in the development of professional community, but also lead him to the participation in the related sciences workshops. Such a situation may be considered as a source of some kind of a strength for a historian: his involvement into the broader debates helps him to shape his own research agenda in much more precise way.
