In September 2019, the Center for the ego-documents’ research was founded at the European University at St.Petersburg: the core project of the Center is the development of digital archive of ego-documents (diaries, journals, memoirs, autobiographies and correspondence). It is also planned to start collecting the genre collection (naive poetry and literature, hand-written folklore collection, children's drawings etc.). For the upcoming years our aim is to create a source-base for scholars in the humanities, digital space for the the cross-archives documents collections and an archive for preserving the documents from the family archives.
