An interdisciplinary conference sponsored by the journal Kritika and the Harriman Institute of Columbia University, to be held at the Harriman Institute in New York City on April 19-20, 2024.
The conference Eurasia Decentered builds upon recent scholarship that casts the differences between the internal souths of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, on the one hand, and the external souths of India, Persia, China, the Ottoman Empire / Turkey, Latin America, and elsewhere, on the other, as both blurred and critical. Kritika editors are soliciting analyses that show the symbiotic nature of north-south relations through economic exchange, political modeling and rivalry, migration, and cultural forms. We seek to highlight the ways the north was transformed by its contacts with the tricontinental south. We intend for the conference to be multi-perspectival across space and time. For instance, how was the Russian Empire perceived from Tehran in 1829 or the Soviet Union from New Delhi in 1946? How did the Soviet Union theorize the existence of its internal south, which was sometimes imagined in racial terms, amid its support for anti-colonial movements in Africa and Asia? We invite the consideration of experts in the histories of the medieval East Slavic states, the Russian Empire, and the Soviet Union, as well as scholars of the external south who engage these topics “from the other shore.”
Kritika editors are drawn to this topic by two related developments in the field of Imperial Russian and Soviet history. The first is the growing prominence of comparative, transnational, and trans-imperial approaches, which have situated histories of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union amid the global circulation of ideas, practices, peoples, and commodities. It bears emphasizing that transnational and comparative thinking and, more broadly, efforts to de-exoticize Russia and the Soviet Union have been part of Kritika’s agenda from its very first issue.
