Dr. Edward Lazzerini Interview

Last Spring, Dr. Edward Lazzerini was awarded a $71,000 National Endowment for the Humanities grant. The award is allowing him, along with a team of domestic and international scholars, to create a massive relational database for Muslim subjects of the Russian Empire between 1828 and 1918. The data includes longitudinal vital statistics and social information gathered from the nominally-named metrical books found in mosques throughout Russia.  He said this is the first time that this data has been analyzed for Muslim communities in the former Soviet Union.
