Adeeb Khalid – The Making of Uzbekistan: Nation Making in an Age of Revolution
15 March, 2016 @ 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Uzbekistan appeared on the map in 1924. Adeeb Khalid traces its emergence in the interstices between Soviet nationalities policies and the strivings of the Central Asian Muslim intelligentsia. Understanding the origins of the Uzbek national project also shed light on the relationship between Uzbekistan and Tajikistan and is thus of profound contemporary relevance.
Adeeb Khalid is Jane and Raphael Bernstein Professor of Asian Studies and History professor of history at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. He works on the Muslim societies of Central Asia in the period after the Russian conquest of the 19th century. His latest book, Making Uzbekistan: Nation, Empire, and Revolution in the Early USSR, has just been published by Cornell University Press.
