Stockdale, "What is a Fatherland? Changing Notions of Duty, Rights and Belonging in Russia". Mark Bassin, "Nationhood, Natural Regions, Mestorazvitie: Environmental Discourses in Classic Eurasianism". John Randolph, "Russian Route: The Politics of the Petersburg-Moscow Road, 1700-1800". Richard Stites, "On the Dance Floor: Royal Power, Class, and Nationality in Servile Russia". Patricia Herlihy, "Ab Oriente ad Ultimum Oriente: Eugen Scuyler, Russia and Central Asia". Robert Argenbright, "Soviet Agitational Vehicles: Colonization from Place to Place". Christopher Ely, "Street Space and Political Culture under Alexander II".
