There was no bread. There was no iron. There was hunger, death, lies, horror and terror—it was the year nineteen.
Boris Pilnyak, The Naked Year 
A hundred years ago, the former Russian empire entered the “Naked Year,” a paroxysm of the civil war that erupted after the 1917 revolutions. For a long time, this war was considered to be a ﬁght for power between the “Reds” and the “Whites.”
I'm looking for someone in Khabarovsk who would be able to look at two Fondy in GAXK for me. It shouldn't take more than a couple of days of research. Happy to pay of course. Contact me if interested: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am writing to inquire if anyone knows of existing bibliographies of published historiographical essays on Russian/Central Eurasian history topics relating to any chronological periods. If there is no such thing, I would like to compile one. If you have any favorite historiographical articles, please email the bibliographical information to me at email@example.com.
Call for Proposals
I am thinking about putting together a roundtable for the fall 2019 ASEEES Conference on "Teaching Russian Studies in the Era of Putin... and Trump." If you have any interest in taking part in such a panel, please message me.
The deadline for submissions is this Friday, February 15.
