The Imagined Interregnum, Colloquium at the Slavonic Library, 5-6 August 2013
Call for Papers:   The Imagined Interregnum. Disintegration and
Re-Establishment of Russian Academic Networks in 1917–1924. Colloquium at the
Slavonic Library.   5-6 August 2013, National Library of Finland, Helsinki,
Finland.   Organised by the research group The Imagined Interregnum (Kirsti
Ekonen, Jussi-Pekka Hakkarainen, Janina Kruglikova, Yevgeni Petrov) in
co-operation with the Slavonic Libraryat the National Library of Finland. 
  ***   Politically turbulent years of the Great War, revolutions of 1917 and
the civil war redrew not only the Russian borders, but reshaped also its
academic life. It isolated Russian scholarly societies from the international
academic debate and during the first post-revolutionary years, the academic
contacts with the Western colleagues were broken or were arranged in sporadic
ways only. The isolation was intensified by the rise of Bolshevik rule and by
the commercial blockade of Western countries. At the same time, the ideas of new
Russian state and its academic organisations were discussed and presented by the
scholars exiled from Russia.
 This period of political turmoil and academic stagnation can be considered also
as Imagined Interregnum, as a period of when one started to precede and prepare
something more sustainable when it comes to the re-organisation of the Russian
state, regardless of the ruling powers. 
The Imagined Interregnum, a colloquium at the Slavonic Library, will investigate
the ideas and ideologies, which were raised within the Russian academic world in
Russia and abroad during the Imagined Interregnum, ie. the years followed by the
Russian revolutions till mid-1920s. We invite proposals which range broadly

The scientific cooperation within the academia, in Russia and in abroad.
The political visions and utopian endeavors of future Russia.
Economic and humanitarian initiatives between western states and Soviet Russia 
Reorganisaton of cultural and scientific relations

  Two-day colloquium will be held at the premises of National Library of
Finland (Unioninkatu 36). Participation is free. Regrettably, the organisers are
