Evgeniya Komleva, Vasiliy Zinoviev, Olga Zhuravel'

Abstract


The article is a description of a research project that has been developed for several years now and is devoted to the study of Russian entrepreneurship history. One of the stages of the project was the creation of An Encyclopaedic Dictionary of the History of the Merchant Class and Trade in Siberia (Novosibirsk, Izdatel'stvo «GEO», 2012–2013). This is an unparalleled publication, the first dictionary of this kind in Russian historiography and it is worthy of attention because of the amount of information included and its structure (it contains videos, an academic bibliography, and the choice of authors is remarkable). The project is discussed by Vasiliy Pavlovich Zinoviev, professor of history (Tomsk State University), an eminent specialist in the economic history of Siberia; Evgeniya Vladislavovna Komleva, leading research fellow of the Department of the 2nd Half of the16th – Early 20th Century History of the Institute of History (Russian Academy of Sciences, Siberian Branch), executive editor of the Dictionary; Olga Dmitrievna Zhuravel’, dean of the faculty of Journalism, Novosibirsk State University. The article describes the problems that underlie the realization of this unique large-scale project, the informational potential of the Dictionary that makes it possible to substantiate not only the economic but also cultural paradigm, as well as entrepreneurship as a mode of living of Siberian merchants.
