Abstract
In the article, on the basis of materials from the Special Collections of the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, the views of Professor Sergey Konovalov and his intellectual circle on the events of the World War II were studied. At the same time, a retrospect into the pre-war years was made, in order to show that the feeling of an impending military catastrophe existed in the circles of Russian emigration already in the late 1930s. The archival documents made it possible to demonstrate some aspects of the everyday life of the Russian diaspora in Great Britain during the Second World War and also Sergey Konovalov’s public activity. It was concluded that the Second World War decisively influenced the academic career and the public views of the scholar. In 1945, he became Head of the Department of the Chair of Russian at Oxford University and put a lot of effort into the development of British Slavic studies and Soviet-British academic relations. His turn towards the USSR did not mean reconciliation with communism and political acceptance of the Soviet system. S.A. Konovalov advocated universal humanistic values. The War transformed the usual political images, as the USSR emerged from it as a winner, since it was possible to preserve the statehood, culture and language. The previous distancing from the whole of the Soviet took a back seat, pushing forward an increased reflexion about their “Russianness”.
