Main Article Content
This special issue of Laboratorium began as papers presented at a 2019 conference made possible in part by a Carnegie Corporation of New York grant to Yale University’s Program in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (no. G-19-57117). The Edward J. and Dorothy Kempf Memorial Fund and the European Studies Council at Yale University provided additional support. “The Russian Corporation/The Corporation in Russia” conference took up early modern and imperial corporations as well as the Soviet and post-Soviet corporations featured in this cluster, and I hope a group of articles on those topics will appear in another journal in due course. In composing this introduction, I have benefited from the memorably spirited engagement at the conference itself—interdisciplinary, international, and with expertise spanning four centuries—and the specific comments and suggestions of Elena Adasheva-Klein, Veronica Davidov, Egor Lazarev, Renata Mustafina, Agnieska Pasieka, and Lauren Woodard. The statements made and views expressed here remain my responsibility.
