Everyday Life and Microhistory in Russia

This website is a research guide created primarily for those students and scholars who engage in the broad topic of "Everyday life and microhistory of Russia." It mentions, briefly, some of the useful methods of finding information on the topic. The main part of this guide, however, consists of bibliographies of different types of publications, such as critical studies, primary sources, dissertations, and serials.  These were collected from some of the principal datases in Slavic and East European studies. One of the main goals of this guide is to assist students in locating primary sources for their research such as diaries, memoirs, and archival documents. It is still a work in progress. If you have any questions or comments please send email to Wookjin Cheun, librarian for Slavic and East European studies of the Indiana University Libraries, at wcheun@indiana.edu.
