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.

Learning, Connecting, Recruiting: Building on over sixty years of IU’s Summer Language Workshop (SWSEEL)

Each summer, for the past sixty-three years, students from all over the world converge in Bloomington to study over twenty less commonly taught languages offered at the Summer Language Workshop (SWSEEL). Founded in 1950, SWSEEL is one of the oldest and largest programs of its kind in North America and has grown to include Central Eurasian languages such as Dari, Kazakh, Mongolian, Hungarian, Pashto, Tatar, Uyghur, and Uzbek. This year, for the first time, Turkish and Persian were also offered.
