Peripheral Histories? Blog: Call for Contributions
The Peripheral Histories? Blog is a collaborative digital history of Russian, Soviet and post-Soviet provinces, localities and republics. Peripheral Histories? exists to challenge the logic that the ‘periphery’ was ever ‘peripheral’ to the history of Russia and the USSR, posing and addressing several broad questions: How do differences of geography, culture, society, ethnicity, and nationality shape local, provincial, and imperial identities? How are divisions between “centre” and “periphery” perceived over time? And how do scholars access the materials needed to address these questions?
The blog will be launched in May 2016, and we are now opening a permanent call for contributions. We enthusiastically welcome blog posts on your research, in addition to new methodologies, conferences, book and thesis reviews, archival information, and interviews with scholars in the field. Contributions should be between 500-2000 words in length.
