In this seminar, by referring to one of Katja Bruisch's journal article, we are going to discuss the history of peatland exploitation and people’s cultural perceptions of it in Russia from late 18th century to today. We will figure out the complex human-environment relationship and broader history of the Russian society behind the peatland exploitation. It is a great chance for participants to talk through various disciplines such as Russian history, environmental science, geography and ecology.
