Contexts of youth protest potential in rap as a musical direction popular among modern youth are analysed in the article. Attempts of imposing of political identity «from above» does not meet requirements of the youth which seeks for self-realisation in the cultural sphere. Therefore, the article examines the socio-psychological phenomenon of such a youth public practice as rap culture, which has now become a brand of mass pop culture. On the basis of sociological data the author analyses social mood and topical problems of the Kazakhstani youth, designing its protest potential. Quite high percent of the young respondents concerned by violations of the legitimate social, civil and political rights is revealed. It is noted that the Z generation prefers non-political forms in a counterbalance a protest to means of cultural self-expression. In mass consciousness installation about rap as to «protest music» was approved. The historical and cultural retrospective of emergence and development of rap allowed the author to disprove the settled stereotype and to prove a position about rap as to music of success and active living position. Topicality and scientific novelty of the problem statement made it possible to show the importance of studying the protest behaviour of young people in the modern scientific space, highlighting its indicators and drawing a conclusion about the need for a psychological study of youth protest tendencies and pedagogic support of the socialisation process.

This article examines how Batwa—the Indigenous peoples of Southwestern Uganda—negotiate agency and cultural self-determination through touristic cultural performances held during the Batwa Trail, an Indigenous tourist attraction in Mgahinga Forest, Southwestern Uganda. I take a theoretical model that approaches Indigenous tourism and touristic cultural performances as a site of social interaction where identity and representation are negotiated. The touristic performances are crucial in articulating Batwa performance culture and as a forum where counter-narratives against the stereotypes and marginalities associated with Batwa culture are constructed. I argue that touristic performances are a strategic form of experiential and embodied practice through which Batwa identity is negotiated and expressed.

The article is devoted to philosophical research progress of religious life trends in the conditions of transformation of Ukrainian society. Exerting a charitable influence on the expansion and strengthening of national self-consciousness and the development of our state, the Ukrainian Churches must gain strength from the powerful influx of the national idea and the progress of Ukrainian statehood. On the other hand, the great paradigm shift observed in the period of important transformational social changes should include in its dialogue the Ukrainian interpretation of Orthodoxy as a basis for the cultural self-identification of the Ukrainian people.

The everyday life of the young generation is to a large extent determined by cultural differences of different origin. Hence the challenge for the education which in its traditional form is not capable of coping with multiculturalism with all its attributes. The need for changes stems from, inter alia, the cultural diversity of societies as a result of migration, in relation to which integration is highlighted as an important process in the construction of the intercultural space of a multicultural society. Therefore, the cultural differentiation of the society, integration and the search for socio-cultural synergy all create a need for education that would equip the young generation, having different cultural self-identifications, with the desired social, civic and intercultural competences. The paper proposes a model approach to education focussed on such issues.

National-cultural self-identification in Russian-language fiction of the XXI century: a linguistic aspect (on the material of E. Vodolazkin’s novel “Laurus”). The paper aims to analyze the linguistic methods of constructing ethnocultural identity in the space of E. Vodolazkin’s novel “Laurus”. The author describes the linguistic identity of the heroes and the narrator, based on the combination of elements of the Old Russian language and various stylistic layers of the modern Russian language, and the significant opposition of the Middle Ages / Ancient Russia. It is proved that the interpretation of national and cultural self-identification in a literary text can become a tool for identifying its semantic dominant.
