Is Russia Over? A Discussion With Dr. Helen FallerFriday, December 2, 2022 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm CET/GMT+1
*NEW LOCATION* Lecture Hall
Russia’s bungled attempt to invade Ukraine in 2022 has laid bare the fragility of its governing model. If Russia fails as a state due to the war in Ukraine, what forms might decolonization take? What could post-Russia Eurasian space look like? Based on intensive fieldwork in Tatarstan and Russia from 1998 to 2006 and recent interviews with people in the Tatar diaspora, Faller will suggest answers to these questions.
Dr. Helen Faller is an anthropologist with expertise in the former Soviet Union. She has conducted long-term ethnographic research in Tatarstan and Kazakhstan and is currently finishing her second book, a memoir about traveling to Central Asia to study dumplings.
