On Muslim Subjectivity in Russia: The Hybrid Languages of Self-Description

The goal is to test the limits of existing approaches in autobiographical studies and apply them to the study of Muslim subjectivities in the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union. The workshop unites an international group of young researchers working in the framework of the ERC project “The Muslim Individual in Imperial and Soviet Russia.” This one-day workshop will comprise of one guest-lecture and a series of in-depth discussions of papers prepared and circulated in advance. A guest-lecture by a leading theorist in the studies of life writing will help the workshop participants to situate their case studies in the broader methodological context and relate them directly to existing scholarly debates.
