    Abstract:
    The Digital Émigré is a web-based resource for exploring the periodical literature of the 20th century Russian emigration. As an online repository of Russian journals and magazines it makes accessible a curated textual corpus in an archive accompanied by a database featuring article-level bibliographical information of these journals. Allowing for new kinds of distant reading of the text and the evaluation of genres, authors and their social communities, Digital Émigré encourages new approaches to journals as mass phenomena that involve thousands of authors and are deeply rooted in the intellectual life of the Russian emigration. The project thereby bridges philological approaches, cultural studies enquiry and sociological questions about intellectual networks and communities of artistic production.
