Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The Russian rhetoric of Crimea as a strategic and symbolic cornerstone of imperial dominance persists through the centuries, since the Russian annexation of the Peninsula in 1783, and is still discernable in the 2014 momentum of the Russian intervention in Crimea. This course offers an overview of the cultural, social and political history of Crimea after 1783 through the prism of its embedment into the history of the Russian Empire and the Soviet and post-Soviet history. Students will critically engage with contemporary sources, gain a thorough understanding of the imperial orientalist worldview, and deepen their understanding of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Russian history. Following a chronological thread, the sessions of the guided reading are dedicated to distinct topics: the Tatar and Karaite communities, educational and political reformism, imperial urban planning, emigration and deportation, legal framework, the discourse of the civilizing mission, Soviet nationalities policy.
The emphasis of this class lies on connecting the historical processes in Crimea with those unfolding in other (Muslim) regions in the Russian Empire and in the Ottoman Empire. Beside familiarization with the topics of Muslim identities and cultures within the Russian Empire, the guided reading allows thematizing the coexistence of multiple ethno-religious communities under imperial administration and the history of their integration and/or resistance. In preparation for the classes, students shall read the texts provided via Moodle and fulfill the assigned written tasks, as well as engage in discussions in larger and smaller groups. Besides, they shall deliver a presentation on a chosen topic and write a short final essay.
