RGWR Call for Proposals: Science, Technology, the Environment, Engineering, and Medicine

Thursday, December 31st, 2015

RGWR Project Team members are interested in producing a stand-alone volume on “Science, Technology, the Environment, Engineering, and Medicine” (STEEM) and seek to identify individuals willing to contribute an original essay to the collection. Essays may involve any aspect of the history/culture of STEEM (broadly construed) across Russia and Eurasia between c. 1914-1922.

Younger scholars, including recent ABDs, are particularly encouraged to participate. Non-native English-speaking colleagues are welcome to submit their essays in their native language.

Deadline for the delivery of initial essay drafts is: 1 February 2017. Following the process of peer-review, revision, and editing the final volume is expected to appear by November 2018.

Those interested in participating the project should contact Dr. Scott W. Palmer through this website.
