Research Projects On The History of Russia
- Cold War International History Project (CWIHP): Established at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, the project supports the full and prompt release of historical materials by governments on all sides of the Cold War, and seeks to accelerate the process of integrating new sources, materials and perspectives from the former "Communist bloc".
- Cold War International History Project Virtual Archive: This Virtual Archive is a part of the Cold war International History Project (Woodrow Wilson Centre) which disseminates new information and perspectives on the history of the Cold War, in particular new findings from previously inaccessible sources. The project supports the full and prompt release of historical materials by governments on all sides of the Cold War, and seeks to accelerate the process of integrating new sources, materials and perspectives from the former "Communist bloc" with the historiography of the Cold War which has been written over the past few decades. Among the activities undertaken by the project to promote this aim are a periodic Bulletin and other publications to disseminate new findings, views, and activities pertaining to Cold War history.
- Harvard Project on Cold War Studies: HPCWS (Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA) promotes archival research in former East-block countries and seeks to expand and enrich what is known about Cold War events and themes. One of the chief means of accomplishing these goals is the sponsorship of scholarly publications, including a Book series and the Journal of Cold War Studies.
- The National Security Archive - Openness in Russia and Eastern Europe Project: Begun in 1992 in the wake of the Soviet Union's collapse and the demise of communist regimes in Central and Eastern Europe, the Openness Project has evolved into a full-scale, multinational undertaking that includes collaborative investigations of contemporary history, joint publications, multinational conferences, technical assistance, training and seed funding, in cooperation with institutions and individuals in Warsaw, Budapest, Moscow, Bucharest, Sofia, Prague, Potsdam and elsewhere.
- Project on the Cold War as a global conflict (International Centre for Advanced Studies, New York University, Sept. 2001 - Sept. 2004): The purpose of the Project is to question and rethink the dominant paradigms of the Cold War as an episode in national and international history, and in the process to create an international network of scholars whose work relates to the Cold War. Fellowships are available for scholars to participate in the project. Worth checking out for all researchers that are working on issues related to the Cold War, both from the two former power-blocks in the conflict, as well as from Africa, Latin-America,
Asia and Australasia.
- Proekt "1812 god": Hosted by the "Museums of Russia" site, this project aims to make available online resources on the war of the1812 year. The project is divided on sections: Library (full text of electronic books and publications of modern authors), Painters-batalists (paintings with comments), Memorial (where are published articles which discuss how the consequences of the 1812 war are reflected in the different aspects of life. Some of the articles are translated in English), Personalities (illustrated bibliographic catalog). The project should be completed by 2012, the Jubilaeum of the Patriotic War of 1812. In Russian.
- Stalin - era Research and Archive project: The Stalin-Era Research and Archives Project (SERAP) is a collaborative, multidisciplinary undertaking based at the Centre for Russian and East European Studies at the University of Toronto.
