Publishing the Russian Empire Abroad

Title

Publishing the Russian Empire Abroad

Subject

Russian emigres, Eurasia, Europe

Description

Over the course of the long nineteenth century, hundreds of thousands of tsarist subjects left the Russian empire and resettled in the major urban centers and university towns of western Europe. This series of interactive visualizations explores the cultural production of these communities.

Please note that these visualizations are not intended to serve as a comprehensive catalogue of publications. The data that serves as the basis of this project was extracted from WorldCat, a large but not entirely comprehensive database of publications, using filters to search by place and language of publication. It is certain that this database omits hundreds if not thousands of titles. That said, this database of some 1700 works published by emigre communities between 1830 and 1920 gestures at the remarkable literary output of these communities, the diversity of their residents, and their cultural preoccupations.

Although every effort has been made to eliminate duplicate records, the data reflects the individual catalogue records, which include discrepancies in transliteration and spelling.
