Working paper

Из истории институциализации экономической науки: «ленинградское дело»

The paper presents an overview of institutionalization of Soviet economic science with a focus on Leningrad and the Economic Faculty of Leningrad State University (LSU) in particular. At the turn of the 1950s LSU and its Economic Faculty were placed at the epicenter of “Leningrad Affair”, one of the last major purges of the Stalin era. The associated increase in document circulation, the practice of stenographic transcriptions of numerous meetings, discussions, lectures, and other materials preserved in the archives, as well as eyewitness accounts, expand the available sources and allow to reconstruct a very complete picture of the unfolding processes.
