Dear Colleagues,

The latest issue of Ab Imperio (2/2023) is now available at https://muse.jhu.edu/issue/50982

The “Methodology and Theory” section features an interview by Alexander Semyonov with Stuart Ward, a historian of the British Empire and decolonization, whose recent book Untied Kingdom: A Global History of the End of Britain has offered an alternative narrative of the British Empire as a composite polity in the permanent crisis.

The “Archive” section presents archival documents pertaining to the organization of the Russian Art Exhibition of 1924–1926 in the United States to elucidate the reality of an autonomous grassroots formation of Soviet citizenship and the absence of an effective or at least consolidated state policy “from above” in the 1920s. In the commentary to the sources, Pavel Golubev offers a new perspective on the differentiation between citizenship and the official nation, and between nationalism and republicanism as the basis of the modern state.
