Abstract or Description

The contents of this themed issue were complete, reviewed and accepted well before Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022. We recognize that perceptions of Russian culture, nationalism and transnational connections will have changed substantially as a result of the war and that writing about Russia's position in the world may now carry painful associations. This issue is in no way intended as a commentary on contemporary events. Firm in the belief that there is worth in historical research that challenges and decentres nationalist mythologies, we have decided to publish our texts in their original form.
