Gulag Studies 1: New Sources and Approaches

Thu, November 9, 5:00 to 6:45pm, Marriott Downtown Chicago, Floor: 4th, Addison

Session Submission Type: Panel

Brief Description

The field of Gulag Studies was fundamentally transformed more than 25 years ago with the partial opening of the Soviet archives. Since then, many academic studies have been based primarily on state-produced sources. This panel features papers that rethink the kinds of non-state sources that scholars can use, and even more importantly, how such sources can be analyzed, using both "traditional" and digital approaches.
