Zhukova N. E., Fartusov D. B.
The interest in the study of everyday life of “little man” using the microhistoric method is due to the anthropocentric nature of the modern secularized society based on rational knowledge. The public and scientific attention is transferred from global processes and personalities of statesmen to daily life of ordinary members of society, their rights, duties, feelings, emotions, daily realities etc. The purpose of this article is to analyze historical scientific literature onthe history of everylife in the 1920s – 1930s in Buryatia. Using micro-analysis and micro-historical methods researchers give a description of the number of historical literature devoted to the study of daily life in the time of active modernization of Buryatia in the 1920s – 1930s.
The authors traditionally divide the historiographical review into the Soviet and post-Soviet stages, highlighting the characteristics and common features of each period. The authors conclude that the study of history of daily in Buryatia is largely unexplored, despite the growing interest of modern researchers in this topic. Such areas of life as the change of moral principles, the drift of value orientations, social adaptation, and factors affecting the formation of consciousness during the modernization in the 1920s – 1930s still remain disclosed.
