The Imperiia Project: a spatial history of the Russian Empire


We can't intervene in the past. But we can interact with it.

This is one of the most compelling reasons to "do history" through digital media: suddenly, the historical record feels like a playground or a garden full of warm, rich, soil. You can almost reach out and touch it.

This is where we store "dashboards." A dashboard is a set of interconnected materials. Rather than presenting a linear story, a dashboard allows you to explore content, generate your own questions, and tell your own stories. These resources allow you to interact with various combinations of ideas, maps, and visualizations. They guide you around but allow you to generate your own conclusions. You can't break anything, and if something goes wrong along the way, just refresh your browser and dive back in.
