Announcement: Russian Sensory History Network Launched

We are pleased to announce the launch of The Cambridge Russian Sensory History Network ( CRUSH). We are a network of European and UK scholars working at the intersection of the history of material and visual culture, and history of science. Our research is informed by the ‘sensory history’ movement that has become a rich area of scholarship in other fields, but that not yet developed fully in studies of Russia and Eastern Europe. We aim to create a sensory history of Soviet Russia, suggesting that this ‘sensory history’ is a crucial counterpart to the recent, and very productive, ‘emotional turn’ in scholarship on Russian and Slavic history and culture.

For more information about the Cambridge Russian Sensory History Network, see the website: http://www.crush.group.cam.ac.uk/ . We will be adding to the site over the next few weeks and months, as more news and events become relevant. We are keen to welcome partners and collaborators from across the international community. For further information, please do contact us at contact@crush.group.cam.ac.uk.
