Special issues on "Gulag Legacy: Spaces of Continuity in Contemporary Everyday Practices" guest-edited by Olga Ulturgasheva. Given the contested, contradictory, and uneasy relationship between the tragic Gulag past and the post-Soviet present, this special issue explores the nature of continuities between the Gulag past and the present, focusing on how these continuities manifest and unfold themselves through spontaneous or unofficial forms of remembrance, symbolic imagery, and localized interaction with the reappropriated spaces and infrastructures of former Gulag camps and prisons. By exploring the legacy of the Gulag and its contemporary social dimensions this special issue provides access to those aspects of the past that are still being effaced in contemporary Russian society. ** Articles: * "The Topography of Incarceration: The Spatial Continuity of Penality and the Legacy of the Gulag in Twentieth- and Twenty-First-Century Russia," Judith Pallot (English). * "The Gulag Reclaimed as Sacred Space: The Negotiation of Memory at the Holy Spring of Iskitim," Jeanmarie Rouhier-Willoughby (English). * "The Communal Apartment under 'Special Surveillance": The Legacy of the Soviet Gulag in Multiethnic Criminal Subcultures in Eastern Siberian Prison Camps," Ivan Peshkov (English). ** Essay: "The Gulag in Vorkuta: Beyond Space and Time," Alan Barenberg (English). ** Field notes: * "Gulag Memory Map: Problems and Gaps," Irina Shcherbakova (Russian). * "'I'd Rather Not Write about It Anymore': The Great Purge and Victims' Children.
