COURSE DESCRIPTION

Nationalism and historiography are interconnected concepts in the realms of politics and in the conceiving of the past. They feed on each other in terms of linking to power, symbolism and legitimacy. This is particularly the case for the wider region of "Central Eurasia". This one-semester course seeks to shed light on why and how local elites of the Caucasus and Central Asia (re)construct political histories of their nations.
