The current issue of ZfO presents findings of the project "Polesia as a Landscape of Intervention: Space, Rule, Technology and Ecology at the European Periphery, 1915-2015", carried out at the University of Siegen, Justus Liebig University in Gießen and at the Herder Institute for Research on East Central Europe―Institute of the Leibniz Association in Marburg.

In their entirety, the contributions illustrate that Polesia experienced a series of structural interventions of varying scope and intensity in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in addition to the military interventions of the First and Second World Wars. However, it is not always possible to speak of an "Landscape of Intervention." The driving force behind the campaigns, which were generally communicated as initiatives to modernize the country, was the state’s interest in safeguarding, dominating and economically exploiting the peripheral region. But it was only during Soviet and post-Soviet times that these interventions were accompanied by an increase in the material standard of living for those affected.

The vast majority of people showed themselves as willing to pay the price of a radical change in their natural environment. Dust storms and atomic clouds, which spread out beyond the administrative borders, showed that new enviro-technical systems were emerging and revealed the limits of humans’ ability to control their own acts of intervention.
