Welcome to the website of Kritika: Explorations in Russian and Eurasian History

The Kritika editors have issued a Call for Papers for our next workshop, “Eurasia Decentered: Internal and External Souths from the Medieval Period to the Present,” to be held at the Harriman Institute, Columbia University, on April 19–20, 2024. Click here for the full announcement.

Current announcements and the latest tables of contents also appear on Kritika’s Facebook page, which you can like/follow using the link below.

During a visit to Moscow, former Kritika editor Willard Sunderland found the monument pictured above (that is Willard in one of the photographs), dedicated to the unsung heroes of academe: the peer reviewers who recommend—or do not recommend—publication of articles. Since Kritika could not function without a steady supply of these dedicated souls, we too would like to honor their efforts. Thank you to all who have reviewed and will continue to review submissions on our behalf.

Congratulations, also, to Willard for his recent sail across the Atlantic. He sent us this photograph when he arrived in Denmark. Note the Kritika flag at top right.
