The Latest Research in Siberian Studies

Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to announce that the latest issue of Sibirica has been published by Berghahn Journals. This issue explores the following topics: urban ethnic Sakha bilinguals and their language ideologies, the mythical Old Man-a cannibal character in the tales of the Forest Yukaghirs (Odul), the trope of the runaway bride, and the altruistic social norms among the Dolgans and the Nganasans in Arctic Siberia. The issue concludes with an essay reassessing Neil Gordon Munro's ethnography of the Ainu people in Hokkaido area.
