Research Highlights

The Imperiia Project: Mapping the Russian Empire

The purpose of the Imperiia project is to promote the study of Russia's spatial history. To that end it aims to 1) make available to scholars and students a range of historical maps, databases related to demographics, cultural institutions, economic infrastructure and administration, 2) assist instructors in bringing interactive engagement with maps and geographical information into the history classroom, 3) encourage conversation and collaboration among researchers, instructors and students interested in the spatial history of the empire.

The project is directed by Professor Kelly O'Neill with support from the Center for Geographic Analysis and Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies.
