Dimitri Mendeleev’s Maps


First draft of the Periodic Table of Elements by Dmitri Mendeleev

A close reading of a previously untranslated book by the Russian chemist Dimitri Mendeleev; connecting his intellectual pursuits to their impact on the growth of the steel industry and the urbanization of Magnitogorsk during the later Soviet Era. By examining the Measures and Maps that Mendeleev produced for the book, I argue that the book and work of Mendeleev as scientific artifacts contributed to Stalin’s urban and industrial vision thirty years later.
