The project led by Julia Lajus was supported by Russian Science Foundation

The project “Natural Resources in History of Russia: Economic Institutes, Communities of Experts and Infrastructures”led by Julia Lajus (Associate Professor, Department of History and Senior Research Fellow of the Center for Historical Research) was supported by Russian Science Foundation. 

The duration of the project is 3 years (2016 – 2018). The project is directed towards the advancement of current academic narratives concerning the history of Russia with specific reference to the problems of use and social construction of nature and natural resources based on analysis of economic institutes, communities of experts and infrastructures. The project is inherently interdisciplinary in nature and will stimulate the development of a critical environmental history in Russia. New knowledge which will be gained as a result of the collaborative work of historians working in the fields of environmental, economic and technological history will enhance significantly our understanding of the processes of interaction between people and nature in the past and facilitate the incorporation of such understanding within contemporary political and decision-making processes concerning the rational use of nature and of natural resources.
