Collection launched: 25 Apr 2017
This special collection focuses on the conceptual and practical considerations of internal colonisation (and internal colonialism) in a range of locales and periods. The collection suggests, among other things, that analysing European internal colonisation from a transnational perspective is a fruitful historical approach. The articles use internal colonisation as a framework to understand diverse phenomena. In the Dutch example, urban population resettlement is observed as a post-war expression of internal colonisation and, in the Russian example, the self-image of internal colonisation is analysed in Russian historiography, later adapted by the Soviet Union.
