An immense body of the research on English in Russia virtually remains terra incognita for scholars working outside the Russian Federation. Similarly, works published in international peer-reviewed journals are not commonly available to Russian scholars. We have started this project in an effort to build the network of researchers -- Russian and western-- studying various aspects of the presence of English in Russia. This project includes bibliographies of published works and dissertation theses (in Russian and English), announcements of conferences and calls for papers, as well as information about international impact factor journals, professional organizations, and Russian English-language media. We invite you, colleagues, to engage in this project: If you have information about an upcoming conference or new publication you'd like to share with the community of researchers or if you are interested in writing a short annotation/book review, please contact us.
