This project looks at the Soviet campaign to compile memoirs of the workers involved in the construction of DniproHES, a major hydroelectric power station on the Dnipro river, in the 1920s-1930s. It explores how Soviet authorities created new "places of memory" and taught workers to "remember" and to speak like "New Soviet Men". Oksana Klymenko also examines the theory and practice of memoir collection and the specifics of daily life for those working on DniproHES.
