The Electronic Archive “Project for the Study of Dissidence and Samizdat” (PSDS) includes the database of Soviet samizdat periodicals, electronic editions of selected samizdat journals, illustrated timelines of dissident movements, and interviews with activists. The Project aims to make rare materials more widely available and to provoke questions about the trajectories of groups and individuals within the varied field of Soviet dissidence and nonconformist culture.
ДИАЛОГ (DIALOGUE) No. 1 (1980) – No. 3 (1981), Leningrad, was a journal that emerged out of the correspondence of its editors Kirill Butyrin and Sergei Stratanovsky. The journal treated problems of liberalism and democracy, religion, nationalism and culture. Issue No. 2 features the participation of Tatiana Goricheva, known for her leading role in the journal ТРИДЦАТЬ СЕМЬ (THIRTY-SEVEN) and the feminist collection ЖЕНЩИНА И РОССИЯ (WOMAN AND RUSSIA). This short-lived edition led to the more developed journal ОБВОДНЫЙ КАНАЛ (OBVODNYI CANAL). This copy of issue No. 2 comes from the Kirill Butyrin Collection (F. 5/1.1) at the Research Centre for East European Studies at Bremen University.
