My book project expands the current field of political, economic, and institutional histories of the Gulag, and offers a cultural history of the Stalinist camps. The book is focused on a few select topics that reveal some of the more distinctive, yet largely overlooked, camp practices and features of everyday life. I shift attention from the Gulag's economic rationale and political prisoners, to the Gulag's broad societal impact and systemic violence. Throughout the various chapters, I highlight the ways in which the violence of everyday life proved to be extensive, routine, and inherent in the labor camp system's design. In this way, I situate the Gulag in the broader academic discussions concerning state terror and crimes against humanity.
