Expanding modernity. The canal network and the transfer of European shipbuilding technologies to the regions of Russia in the 18th century
The paper will discuss the governmental projects of modernization and westernization of transportation and fishing shipbuilding in the regions of Russia (the North, the Volga basin, the North-West with the Ladoga lake) through the perspective of geography of modernity in the Russian Empire. I will present the organizational structures of transfers with the Particular shipyard as a core as well as instruments of knowledge circulation. Special emphasis will be made on the problem of experts. The transformation of shipbuilders from the mere carpenters to the elite technical staff was the general tendency of the European development of shipbuilding industry and the Russian page of this story is still significantly understudied. To what extent the modernization of shipbuilding practices was connected in the eyes of the government to the social transformation from the peasant with axe to the expert with linear plan ? How the knowledge was recorded and transported ? What was the role of technical graphic and models ? In the conclusion I will discuss the question of success in connection to these projects.
