The Shalamov Society

Welcome to the Website of the Shalamov Society!

The Shalamov Society was created in 2001 by Marina Vorono of the Shalamov Museum in Vologda and Laura Kline of Wayne State University in order to bring scholars and researchers of the life and works of Russian writer Varlam Tixonovich Shalamov together, to make available bibliographic and other information about Shalamov, and to publicize upcoming events related to this field.

Anyone involved in the study of the life and works of Shalamov is invited to join the society and to have his/her name, relevant publications and research interests included on this website. Any information about other sites related to Shalamov is welcome, as are any ideas for developing the role of this society or improving this website.
