In the work, based on the material of the literatures of the Russian Federation and the CIS, an attempt was made for the first time to analyze the problems of self-identification in its correlation with innovative processes in the modern globalizing world. New trends in the development of the literatures of the peoples of the Russian Federation and the CIS, due to the dynamics of transforming societies, are considered. At the updated methodological and factual levels, an analysis of topical issues is proposed, which include the phenomenon of national literature in the Russian civilizational space, traditional values in the era of globalization, cultural diversity and unity of diversity, mechanisms of continuity and interaction, problems of borderland and transitivity, etc.

Keywords: self-identification, tradition, continuity, intertext, national narrative, V. Rasputin, F. Iskander, Ya. Kolas, M. Khvylevoy, T. Chrakyan, A. Gogua, R. Bukharaev, continuity, accelerating modernity, autobiography, the inevitability of change.
