Mapping Workers’ Councils, 1917-1927 has launched a very interesting initiative to map workers’ councils as they spread across Europe and beyond in the years following the 1917 revolutions in Russia. Each case includes a reference to articles or books where more information can be found. The project has just begun and the team is still working on the largest data set, territories from the former Russian Empire. Despite the omissions this is an extremely helpful research resource, as it allows to visualize the geography and history or working-class autonomy, the regional and urban bases thereof and their relation to industrial development and the production of alternative territorialities, amongst others — I am looking forward to new updates. Contributions are welcome, more information here.
