Workshop

Resources in Use: Visions and Practices in Late Imperial Russia and the Early Soviet Union

In the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, the use of resources was embedded in aspirations of economic development and civilizing missions, as well as in attempts to enforce and establish centralized control over imperial peripheries. With the advent of the age of reforms in the 1860s, efforts directed at resource use were intertwined with ambitious endeavors to increase social participation and self-governance.
While resources were indeed at the core of imperial expansion and a globalizing economy, more research is needed to understand how these processes were tied together in different places. Therefore, this workshop seeks to develop new perspectives on resource use and distribution in late imperial Russia while exploring (dis-)continuities in the early Soviet
Union. The discussion will focus on the interplay between state planning and processes unfolding on the ground in order to locate imperial and global entanglements of resource policies and practices.

The Leibniz Institute for the History and Culture of Eastern Europe (GWZO)
focuses its research on the region between the Baltic Sea, the Black Sea and the Adriatic from late antiquity until the present day in a comparative perspective. We examine transformations, interrelationships and entanglements in a globalizing world. The institute thus seeks to contribute to a deeper understanding of political, economic and social developments in the countries, societies and cultures of East Central and Eastern Europe.
