Peter’s research focuses on the papers and personal correspondence of Alexis Aladin, a leading figure in Russian radical political life. The project seeks to establish the significance of Anglo-Russian networks dedicated to understanding Russia’s economic situation during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, and to better understand how far pre-revolutionary Russian exiles in the UK thought of themselves as the custodians of an alternative ‘real Russia’, a model for a different kind of socialist economic and political transformation.

This project is funded by a JRRI Pilot Grant, and runs from January to July 2018.
