The purpose of the Digital Russian Peasant Project (DRPP) is to create a fully searchable and shareable database, cataloging information regarding documented primary sources that describe the various aspects of Russian peasant life, as well as providing a reference point for available secondary source material. Information collected in the database will then be used to create online tools capable of allowing the user to specify complex search queries or visualize the data on an interactive platform in order to facilitate drawing broader connections across the source-base.

Beginning Goals and Needs[edit | edit source]

As of 3 December 2010 this project is still in its infancy and requires a few aspects to be worked out. Here are the areas that are of initial, broad concern:

  1. Standardization of data input, including choice of database format
  2. Discussion of what topics on peasant life should be prioritized, if any
  3. Brief sketch of what types of online tools would be preferred to search/view the cataloged data
  4. Bibliography of source-base

Questions/Suggestions should be sent to
