The category of Soviet consists of a variety of aspects of Communist and Socialist Studies, which at different universities can be located within departments of East European studies. This research focus attempts to tackle questions relating to various facets of Soviet society, such as trade relations, nationality policy, human rights, socialist empire, or collectivization and famines in the USSR. Soviet history is often comprehended through metaphors like “party-state,” “totalitarianism,” “thaw,”, “perestroika,” “revolution from above,” “communist labor,” and “post-Soviet,” among others. The purpose of an educational platform is not to confirm or negate such metaphors, or to fill all the thematic or chronological blocks of Soviet history, but rather to enrich our knowledge of European socialism with fresh resources and narratives. Here historians can find materials related to the party-state system, the socialist ambition to create a new man, the way in which people imagined communist societies, urban utopias, and totalitarian practices.
