  • Elena Bagina Institute of Civil Engineering of Ural Federal University named after B. N. Yeltsin


The processes of globalization that lead to loss of national and cultural peculiarities of big cities arouse a keen interest toward the idea of identity. Opposite tendencies develop as a reaction to globalization, including increase of national consciousness that implies a high interest toward national history, traditions and religion. The philosopher E. H. Erikson defined identity as continuous internal equality with oneself. This definition suits urban studies best of all.
