About this site
ZAPISY (Notes) is a continuation of the series which began its publication in 1952, by the Belarusan Institute of Arts and Sciences in the U.S.Volums 1-6 were published in 1952-54 in New York; the following 5 volumes (1-5) were printed in 1962-70 in Munich, Germany. Beginning with vol.12(1974) the ZAPISY have been published in New York,U.S.A.
The basic concept of the series is to publish articles that, regardles of approach or subject, will command the attention of our readers in the several countries of the Belarusan diaspora, those in homeland, and in the scholarly world at large; and will make a contribution to the various spheres of interest which are embraced without becoming so recondite that they can be appreciated by only a small circle of specialists. This goal presents a constant challenge to the Editorial Board and to our contributors.
We find that part of what we are doing is engaging the nation in a quest for its identity. The Belarusan people are passing through a trying period, nudging forward, trying out and embracing new understandings, shedding old fears as they go.With the perspective of history, one can view this neuralgic process as the labor pains of national rebirth.
