The vision of Caucasus like the other ex-socialist Eastern borderlands of Russia by most scholars and politicians is still very confused at the moment. It is often thought of as either the realm of an unchanging primitive custom or the berth of Islamist globalization and terrorism opposing all non-Muslim societies. Both images are quite divorced with reality. There are also other numerous myths and fears associated with the post-socialist Caucasus. The proposed interdisciplinary special course aims to dissolve these wrong images of the region and introduce students into Caucasian studies. It includes basic information on regional geography, political organization and economics. The course concentrates on key societal issues of the region including mental, political and economic mapping the North Caucasus and Transcaucasia, invention of local tradition and legacy of the Russian and especially socialist rule, local responses to challenges of post-socialist globalization, the growth of Islamic radicalism and terrorism, issues of common security, etc. Addressing post-graduate students specializing in the field of political science, economics and sociology this short-term special course consists of 6 main thematic units. It is conducted in a lecture/discussion format. The first part of each class will be held as the discussion of the readings. The discussions will also be the place for further inquiry into questions raised in the lectures. The course requires neither academic background in Islamic studies nor knowledge of Russian and Oriental languages. The list of assigned and recommended readings will be delivered to students before the first class in the very beginning of October. Given rapid changes in contemporary Central Asia, some recent new readings on the Islamic globalization of the region might be included into the course.
