    СКАНДАЛ ПО-НАУЧНОМУ

    Добрый день всем. Я думаю, Институт, как учреждение, нанявшее О.В.Субракову и ее коллег на работу и поручившее им составление словаря, обладает исключительным правом распоряжаться словарем, как ему заблагорассудится. Я думаю, здесь проблема, прежде всего, в В.Я., чьи чувства так хорошо изложил автор вышеприведенной заметки. Хм... Не буду говорить о том, что такое лексикография, как делают словари, и может ли Н.Ю.Шведова (долгих ей лет жизни!) от имени С.И.Ожегова подать в суд на С.А.Кузнецова за то, что все слова ожеговского словаря можно отыскать в его Новом академическом словаре... Скажу о другом. Если бы В.Я., чьи материалы вошли в картотеку словаря (а как могло быть иначе - лексикографических трудов раз-два и обчелся, литературы на хакасском кот наплакал), искренне радел о словаре, он мог бы найти способ войти в "цивилизованный" контакт с коллективом авторов, редактором словаря, мог бы договориться о том, чтобы смотреть и редактировать (несмотря на то, что он не лексикограф) "свои" статьи, принимать участие в обсуждении словарных статей... Да что сейчас об этом говорить! Говорят, он получил деньги за свои две тысячи слов. Это правда? На его месте я, напечатав свой историко-этнографический словарь и умудрившись продать словник ХакНИИЯЛИ, был бы элементарно благодарен за то, что мои материалы вошли в словарь, и мое имя указано в предисловии среди других славных имен. Это же такая честь! Кто знает, может, такого словаря больше никогда не будет, и мое имя, пусть петитом, пусть в Предисловии, останется на века. (Ха! Я положил два года жизни на указатель к некому словарю, мое имя указали петитом в сноске к предисловию к указателю, помещенному во втором томе этого словаря, и я этим весьма горжусь ). Раздрай наших ученых, которых можно пересчитать по пальцам, которые сидят в шаге друг от друга и постоянно ставят друг другу палки в колеса, бессмыслен и смешон.
  5. Call For Papers Central Eurasian Studies Society Eighth Annual Conference (2007) October 18-21, 2007 University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. The Central Eurasian Studies Society (CESS) invites panel and paper proposals for the Eighth CESS Annual Conference, October 18-21, 2007, in Seattle, Washington. The event will be held at the University of Washington, hosted by the Ellison Center for Russian, East European and Central Asian Studies. Panels begin Friday morning, October 19, and continue through mid-day on Sunday, October 21. Panel and paper topics relating to all aspects of humanities and social science scholarship on Central Eurasia are welcome. The geographic domain of Central Eurasia extends from the Black Sea and Iranian Plateau to Mongolia and Siberia, including the Caucasus, Crimea, Middle Volga, Afghanistan, Tibet, and Central and Inner Asia. Practitioners and scholars in all humanities and social science disciplines with an interest in Central Eurasia are encouraged to participate. The program will feature approximately 60 panels and there will also be a supplementary program including cultural events, a welcome reception on Thursday, a conference dinner and a keynote speaker. Deadline for submission of panel/paper proposals: Friday, April 6, 2007. Submissions of pre-organized panels are strongly encouraged and will be given some preference in the selection process. Individual papers are also welcome and will be assigned by the program committee to an appropriate panel with a chair and a discussant. Only electronic submissions will be accepted (see the webform on the CESS website: http://cess.fas.harvard.edu/CESS_Conference.html). FULL DETAILS of Conference Participation There has been a huge growth in interest in the CESS conference as our society has become more established. Over the past three years, attendance has averaged about 500 per year, with dozens of countries and all major fields of scholarship represented. We expect a similar number to attend in 2007. Please note that due to this high level of interest, and the fact that the total number of participants in CESS 2007 will be limited due to space constraints, we anticipate that the selection of papers will be very competitive, and we encourage all who hope to attend to consider working with colleagues to arrange a pre-organized panel, as this will improve your chances of acceptance. The Conference Committee accepts electronic submissions only – either by webform (see the CESS website: http://cess.fas.harvard.edu/CESS_Conference.html), or by an e-mailed form in MS Word format in the case of those who don't have web access (please contact us by e-mail to obtain the form in MS Word format). We require electronic format because website submissions can more easily be processed than other methods, and we have limited resources to manage the hundreds of submissions that we anticipate receiving. The following information is required for submissions; we suggest that you prepare the text before accessing the website so you can simply paste the information into the form (but do not send it without the form!): For Paper Presenters: 1) Name, 2) Current institutional affiliation, 3) Title/position, 4) E-mail, 5) Postal address, 6) Telephone, 7) Fax, 8) Title of Paper, 9) Abstract of Paper (a summary of the paper of 200-300 words; abstracts longer than 300 words may be rejected), 10) Any audio-visual equipment requests (specify -- e.g., overhead projector, slide project, video player), 11) A one-page CV which contains the information which the panel chair may require for introductions, and includes the presenter's educational background (highest degree, year awarded, awarding institution, and field of study). For Panels: Proposals may be submitted for regular panels (with presentation of scholarly papers) and roundtable panels (featuring discussion of a current topic in the field). Regular Panels: In addition to the information for paper presenters (as indicated above), the following are also required: a) a title for the proposed panel, and name, affiliation, and contact information of the panel chair and discussant. Panels should have three or four paper presenters, a chair, and a discussant. The program committee can accept panel submissions which lack one or two of these, but no panel proposal should have fewer than four people who have given a firm assurance that they definitely plan to participate in the conference unless they are prevented by circumstances out of their control. If the panel as proposed does not include a full complement of panelists (i.e., 3-4 presenters, discussant and chair), the other panel participants may be filled in as necessary by the program committee if the panel proposal is accepted. Pre-organized panels should be thematically coherent and may be organized/sponsored by a scholarly organization (optional). Roundtable Panels: A roundtable has four or five presenters and a chair/moderator. For roundtable proposals, the organizer must provide a paragraph describing the panel objectives and providing justification for use of the roundtable format. The same information is required of each participant as for regular panels with the exception that abstracts and paper titles are not required. Sponsored Panels: CESS encourages other institutions supporting the study of Central Eurasia, such as regional scholarly associations, to organize "sponsored panels" at the CESS conference -- i.e., panels organized by the sponsoring institution, involving their members and receiving their imprimatur. Best Paper Graduate Student Award: There will be an award in the amount of $500 given to the best graduate student conference paper submitted to the Awards Committee for consideration. The deadline for submissions is Friday, Sept. 21, 2007, 5:00 pm Eastern Time. See the CESS awards webpage for details, or contact the Awards Committee Co-chairs, Dr. Douglas Northrop <northropumich. edu>, and Dr. Uli Schamiloglu <uschamilwisc. edu>. IMPORTANT NOTES for submissions: 1. Submission Format: Do not send your proposal in any format other than the webform or the MS Word form, as the committee will not consider it in that case. 2. Ensuring Quality Proposals: Since the selection process is expected to be quite competitive, we strongly advise you to follow the Guidelines for Writing Abstracts available on the CESS website. Those who do not do this will have significantly lower chances of their proposal being accepted. If you do not have web access, we can send you the guidelines by e-mail upon request. 3. Commitment to Participate: By submitting a proposal, you are indicating your serious intention to participate in the conference -- including your commitment to take the necessary steps to obtain any required visa or funding -- unless prevented by circumstances out of your control. You will be asked to confirm your commitment in June after your proposal is accepted. Note that, because withdrawal after the program has been put together is very disruptive and harms the quality of panels, and prevents us from including people in the program who would indeed be able to attend, CESS rules stipulate that those who withdraw after August 1 without a good reason are barred from participating in the conference the following year, and those who fail to appear at the conference without timely notice to the Conference Committee will be considered "no-shows" and will be barred from participating for the next two years. The deadline for such notification is September 28, and after this date, no registration fees can be refunded. 4. E-mail Contact: Since all communication with prospective participants is via e-mail, and we will require your confirmation of participation in June after proposals are accepted and again in September when all of your visa and travel arrangements should be in place, it is vitally important that you make sure we always have an e-mail address that will reach you. If we LOSE CONTACT with you after your proposal is accepted, you will be dropped from the program, will be counted as a "no-show", and will not be able to participate in the conference. 5. Abstracts of Publishable Quality: If you are accepted and participate in the conference, your abstract will be published on the CESS website, so please write it carefully to avoid errors and ensure that it conforms with the criteria for a good abstract (see Guidelines for Writing Abstracts). 6. Program Limitations: No participant may present more than one paper at the conference. Without special justification, the program committee will not schedule any individual to appear on more than two panels as a presenter or discussant. If you have a paper included on a pre-organized panel and you also submit an individual paper, the pre-organized panel takes precedence and if it is accepted, your other paper proposal will not be considered. Schedule of Key Dates Deadline for submission of panel/paper proposals: Friday, April 6, 2007. - Note: Submissions after this date may be accepted only in the case of special justifying circumstances and at the discretion of the program committee. Notification of acceptance: by June 5, 2007. - The host institution will provide, upon request, mailed or faxed invitation letters to support an application for a visa or travel funds; these will be sent in the second half of June. Note: Obtaining a U.S. visa can take a long time, and we urge participants to begin the process immediately upon notification of their proposal's acceptance. Deadline for notification of audio-visual requests: Friday, September 14 . Pre-registration deadline: Friday, September 14 . - Note: Pre-registration and CESS membership is required for all presenters, and entitles you to significantly reduced registration fees. For those not on the program, pre-registration reserves a space at the conference, in the event that attendance reaches the maximum capacity. Papers should be submitted to chairs/discussants: by Friday, September 28. - Paper presenters will be informed via e-mail by mid-September of the e-mail addresses of their panel's chair and discussant, to whom they should send their papers by the deadline. Deadline for confirmation of participation: Friday, September 28. - Paper presenters who have not pre-registered will be requested via e-mail in late August to confirm their participation in the conference. Any who do not respond within 1 month will be removed from the program. Anyone withdrawing from the conference after this date will not be eligible for a refund of conference fees and may be ineligible to participate in the subsequent year's conference. Conference: October 18-21, 2007 . - Arrival to Seattle is on the afternoon/evening of Thursday, October 18 -- registration opens in the afternoon followed by a reception in the evening. Panels begin Friday morning, October 19, and continue through mid-day on Sunday, October 21. Registration Each conference participant is required to pay a registration fee and presenters are required to pre-register. The fee is reduced for CESS members, for University of Washington students, and for those who pre-register before the pre-registration deadline -- September 14 . The level of the fee also depends on your CESS membership dues category (with some members being entitled to reduced dues -- see the CESS Membership Form for details). Payment of registration fees IS REQUIRED for all attending the conference, and cover an welcoming reception on Thursday and the conference dinner on Friday. Fees for 2007 are as follows: - Regular fee members*: $75 (pre-registration) or $100 (at conference) - Reduced fee members**: $50 (pre-registration) or $70 (at conference) - Non-members: $100 (pre-registration) or $130 (at conference) - Univ. of Washington students: $35 (pre-registration) or $45 (at conference) - UW student CESS members: $25 (pre-registration) or $30 (at conference) * "Regular fee members" are those who have paid their annual dues at $50. ** "Reduced fee members" are those who have current membership at reduced fees ($0-$20). Panel participants may submit the registration fee at the same time as submitting this form, or at any time before the pre-registration deadline of September 14. We accept payment by 1) cash (only at the conference), 2) check or money order (if not from a US bank, please contact us to find out what form is acceptable from your country), 3) credit card (see the Credit Card Payment Form on the CESS website). Payments should be mailed to: Central Eurasian Studies Society, c/o John Schoeberlein, 1730 Cambridge Street, Room S-327, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA. Please consult the CESS Membership Form for full details on methods of payment (http://cess.fas.harvard.edu/CESS_Membership.html). NOTE: CESS does not have funds to support the costs of conference participation, and does not waive the conference fee for participants who cannot afford it. Paper presenters, other panelists, and conference attendees are required to pay the registration fee, and additionally, those included on the program (paper presenters, roundtable panelists, discussants, etc.) are required to be CESS members in good standing -- i.e., to have paid any dues they owe. Participants must obtain their own funding -- from personal resources, their own institutions, or grant-giving organizations which provide conference travel grants. Some further information about possible sources is available on the conference website. Travel and Accommodations Information about the University of Washington and the city of Seattle, transportation options, maps, and lodging information will be available on the University of Washington's CESS Conference Information page at http://jsis.washington.edu/ellison/CESS.shtml. Please be sure to visit this webpage for detailed information. All conference participants are responsible for making their own arrangements for travel and accommodations.

  6. Dear Friend of CIAS, By now you should have received the Call for Papers for CIAS 2007 on May 15 -17, 2007 on the subject of The Exploitation of the Landscape of Central and Inner Asia: Past, Present and Future. We very much hope that this theme will prove to be as rewarding and stimulating as the Silk Road was for CIAS 2005. The proceedings of that conference will soon be published as Toronto Studies in Central and Inner Asia, vol. 8. We were very heartened by the many messages of concern received from our friends last year, when plans for CIAS 2006 were suspended because of forces beyond our control. It is good to know that so many of you – participants in past meetings, researchers in the area and other friends and supporters of CIAS activities - share our deep interest in the region. In order to enhance the quality of the 2007 conference, we are mounting a campaign to raise money to enable us to assist presenters from the region, and others, who would otherwise not be able to attend, to participate in the meeting. We also hope to improve both our web and print publications. We hope that you, as a friend of CIAS, can help in that process. Can you suggest names of individuals, companies or other organizations that might be interested in joining the CIAS community and indeed might be willing to invest in it, by way of a financial donation to CIAS? Such a donation would, of course, be tax-deductible in Canada and, via the Buffalo office of the University of Toronto, in the USA. We will provide recognition, on the website, in our program and in publications such as the conference Proceedings, for all donors. Please take a moment now to send us names and contact information, for anyone or any organization you can recommend that we approach. Thank you for your time and trouble. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting. Michael Gervers Gillian Long P.S. Of course, we would be delighted if you yourself could make a donation (payable to the U of T, memo: CIAS). It would be a solid investment in fostering knowledge and appreciation of the people, cultures and countries of Central and Inner Asia. Thanks again.
  7. Dear Colleagues, The Twelfth Annual Conference of the Central & Inner Asia Seminar (CIAS 2007) will be held at the University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in the Croft Chapter House on May 15-17, 2007. The proceedings of the conference will be published in due course in "Toronto Studies in Central and Inner Asia". Volume 8, the papers from CIAS 2005, will be available before the upcoming conference. The theme of this year's gathering is "The Exploitation of the Landscape of Central and Inner Asia, Past, Present and Future." Scholars from a wide range of disciplines are invited to submit proposals for papers. The time allowance for any presentation is 20 minutes. Please include the title, a one-page summary and a short copy of your curriculum vitae and send them, by email, to me at gillian.long@utoronto.ca or to Professor Michael Gervers at gervers@chass.utoronto.ca The deadline for submissions is December 1, 2006 and those selected will be notified by email as soon as possible thereafter. We regret that we do not have the financial resources to help with any transportation or accommodation costs. However we will do our best to expedite visa applications and offer hospitality during the conference. We look forward to receiving many interesting proposals and to hosting another stimulating and enjoyable conference in Toronto in May. Please forward this message to anyone else who may be interested. For further information see www.utoronto.ca/cias The website will be updated regularly as more information becomes available. Sincerely Gillian Long Administrative Co-ordinator for CIAS 416 978 4882

Science 25 August 2006: Vol. 313. no. 5790, p. 1029 DOI: 10.1126/science.313.5790.1029a News of the Week ARCHAEOLOGY: After 2 Millennia on Ice, a Nomad Resurfaces Andrew Curry* BERLIN--Decked in a magnificent fur mantle and gilded wooden headdress, a nomad--probably a fierce warrior--was buried more than 2200 years ago in the icy highlands of Mongolia. This week, a team of archaeologists, led by Hermann Parzinger, director of the German Archaeological Institute in Berlin, announced that they had found his partially mummified remains. The finding will reveal more about the culture and conditions that preserved the body. It is urgent work, observers say, because a warmer environment could destroy specimens like this. In 2004, the 30-member team from Germany, Russia, and Mongolia surveyed more than a dozen stone-covered burial mounds in northwestern Mongolia. Last year, they returned to the 2600-meter-high plateau in the Altai region, a remote mountain range that borders Russia, China, and Mongolia, with electromagnetic sensors, temperature probes, and other instruments to look for ice layers that might indicate intact burials. Parzinger has made spectacular finds before. In 2001, he pulled nearly 20 kilograms of artfully worked jewelry out of a similar grave mound in the Russian republic of Tuva. Archaeologists say the Altai plateaus are the burial grounds of the Pazyryk, members of a larger Scythian culture that occupied Central Asia as early as the 9th century B.C.E. and struck fear into the hearts of the ancient Greeks and Persians. rest at http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/313/5790/1029a
  9. Это блюдо всюду известно как "монгольское". У солонгосов оно готовится в большой посудине на огне. Одно время, совсем недавно, называлось "чингисхан", сейчас, вслед за японцами, сябу-сябу ("щябу-щябу" , по-японски как будто бы "буль-буль", правда ли это?).

В теме "Ищутся специалисты-альтруисты, способные проконсультировать по истории" (раздел "Информация о почитателях...") kibik дает своеобразную характеристику одному из участников этого форума, и эта характеристика, как мне кажется, ложная. Не мог бы администратор каким-либо образом отреагировать на то сообщение? Я думаю, самый простой путь это...

    "...пользуясь привычными для нас понятиями, мы не всегда можем словами сформулировать волнующие нас идеи. Например, нам порой не всегда просто объяснить, что такое «национальность» – что это за явление, которое так часто влияет на процессы в человеческом обществе. Каждый человек как существо мыслящее, несомненно, дает для себя удобное для своего мировоззрение определение этого явления. Однако на практике..." Так пишут на http://khakasweb.ru/. На новеньком, с пылу-жару, хакасВЕБе есть и форум, где тусуются люди, пишущие на хакасском.

    Поздравляю с шагом вперед! Алгыстапчам!! Öрiнчем!!! Пока что сам не зарегистрировался, пребываю несколько дней в тяжком раздумии. Поясню. Я привык скрывать свой электронный адрес от кого бы то ни было (мои некогда необдуманные действия, как-то выставление адреса на публике, привели к тому, что я удаляю каждый день утром и вечером из каждого из моих адресов по несколько десятков спама), однако на www.khakasia.com функции "спрятать адрес" не увидел. Можно, конечно, создать новый (марло собака...) адрес, указать его... Подумаю. Еще раз поздравляю. Теперь дело за малым - было бы кому писать!
