Azerbaijan
Estonia
Finland
Kazakhstan
Kyrgyzstan
Poland
Tajikistan
Tatarstan
Turkmenistan
Uzbekistan
Historical Central Eurasia

This colloquium offers a comparative study of the concept of empire and of the major nationalities in tsarist Russia and the USSR. It seeks to provide an antidote to a traditional Russocentric approach as well as to narrow ethnocentric views regarding the non-Russian areas. We will stress the period since the mid-19th century when national movements began emerging among many of the ethnic groups in the empire. The course will assess developments both from the perspective of the center (nationality “policy” in St. Petersburg and Moscow) and that of the non-Russian borderlands.
