Norihiro Naganawa "Writing a Transnational History of Russia's Civil War"
The International Laboratory “Russia’s Regions in Historical Perspective” organizes a lecture by Norihiro Naganawa (Hokkaido University) “Writing a Transnational History of Russia’s Civil War” within the course “Russia’s Regions: cultural, historical, and (geo)political perspectives”.
The lecture will be held March 22, at 6 p.m., at Staraya Basmannaya, 21/4, bld. 1, room 511.
The literature on Russia’s Civil War has developed discretely along the lines of either tsarist administrative units or Soviet national republics since its very birth. This sort of division of labor impedes an inquiry of such a fundamental question as how the Bolsheviks managed to regather non-Russian territories of the shattered empire. Focusing on the role of Tatar intermediaries in the Red Army advancing into Central Asia, this lecture probes methods of capturing transnational and geopolitical dynamics of Russia’s Civil War.
