Soldiers, Civilians, and the Ecosystem of War in Russia, 1914-1918

This project studies a new social formation that emerged in Russia's war zones during World War I. Through a study of the outlooks, relationships, and practices of soldiers, civilians, and social service personnel who lived in the regions placed under martial law, it will describe a process of violent desocialization in this region that would extend to the rest of the empire in the succeeding years of revolution and civil war. Special attention will be paid to mass migration and to violent interactions between soldiers and civilians. The study will also examine the peculiar economy of front-line areas and the impact of infectious disease on both military operations and war zone society.
