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.
The journal СЕВЕРНАЯ ПОЧТА (THE NORTHERN MAIL), No. 1 (1979) – No. 8 (1981), Leningrad, was edited by Sergei Dediulin and Viktor Krivulin. This relatively slim and elegantly styled typescript journal features poetry from contemporary poets and their modernist predecessors, as well as important critical articles from Krivulin, Grigory Pomerants and others. The copy of issue No. 1-2 comes from the Boris Groys Collection (F. 75) and other issues come from the Vladimir Erl’ Collection (F. 37) at the Research Centre for East European Studies at Bremen University.
