RUSSIAN HISTORY THROUGH THE SENSES – FROM 1700 TO THE PRESENT

Bringing together an impressive cast of well-respected scholars in the field of modern Russian studies, Russian History through the Senses investigates life in Russia from 1700 to the present day via the senses. It examines past experiences of taste, touch, smell, sight and sound to capture a vivid impression of what it was to have lived in the Russian world, so uniquely placed as it is between East and West, during the last three hundred years. The contributors discuss the significance of sensory history in relation to modern Russia and cover a range of exciting case studies, rich with primary source material, that provide a stimulating way of understanding modern Russia at a visceral level.
