Adrian Selin`s paper, titled “Social Dynamics of Small Groups in the Russian-Swedish Border-Zone Since 1617,” examined social transformations in the first half of the XVII century precipitated by the Time of Troubles and the new border with Sweden set in 1617-1621. The author emphasized changes among tradespeople and noblemen, arguing that social structures became more simplified while internally, separate groups became increasingly consolidated.
At the panel titled “Social Structures and Social Practices in Russia in the 16th – early 20th century,” Vladimir Uspenskiy described new approaches to the study of Russian nobility using the Social Network Analysis.

Elena Kochetkova`s paper, “The Transfer of Foreign Technologies and Soviet Modernization in 1950s-1960s: the Case of Pulp and Paper Industry” was devoted to tracing the channels and consequences of technology transfer during Khrushchev`s modernization drive. The author argued that this period saw the development of several ways for transfer, although these methods did not enable the Soviet leadership to modernize forestry, and instead made the enterprise more dependent on the West.
