Peripheral Histories? Blog: Call for Contributions Tags: contributions blog

Peripheral Histories? Blog: Call for Contributions

The Peripheral Histories? Blog is a collaborative and international digital history project 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 project is also meant to provide a forum for graduate students and early career scholars to publicize their research and connect with other academics who share similar interests.

The blog, which launched in April 2016, is 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. 
 
The blog can be found here: http://peripheralhistories.blogspot.com
 
If you are interested in contributing, please contact the editorial team at peripheralhistories@gmail.com
