Traditional Tatar Culture in the space of modern Moscow
Cultural Studies
(Bachelor’s programme)

2019
Thesis is devoted to the study of traditional Tatar culture in modern Moscow. The focus of the study is the tradition of the memorial ritual (“Majlis”), which, according to the researcher, is transformed in the conditions of the modern Russian megalopolis. Using the methods of cultural-anthropological, structural-semiotic and discourse analysis, I demonstrate the main structural nodes within which the interaction of traditional and urbanized cultures takes place. The work consists of historical and practical parts. The first chapter examines the history of the city Tatars and Tatar culture in the “big cities”, the second chapter is devoted to the study of the case “Memorial ritual in the Tatar family”, which I explore by analyzing interviews and visual archives, as well as using the method of observation included.
