TopicRussian elites and European norms, models and innovations, 1700-1917 : some lessons from the past in a long term perspective
The contribution will begin by a short presentation of the megagrant project, the way we conducted our works, our method and our sources. Then to explore the extreme variety of relations that took place between Russian and European elites from 1700 to 1917, the paper will focus on a few concrete examples and will rely on the concepts of circulation, diffusion and appropriation.
