Description
Learning outcomes 

This course aims to assist students in acquiring a better understanding of ethnic aspects of federal and regional politics in Russia. For the purpose of the case studies, the course takes the situation in those regions where peoples speaking the Finno-Ugrian languages live. By the end of the course, students will be able to analyse the implications of the complicated political, economic and cultural reforms for contemporary Russia.

 

 
Content 

The course discusses the dynamics of Russia’s nationalities policy with the focus on regional policies that affect Russia’s Finno-Ugrian minority peoples. The lectures address the evolution of nationalities policy in the Soviet Union and post-Soviet Russia; the current main ethnic policy directions and layers: ethnic federalism, national-cultural autonomy, minority political participation; evolution of regional politics through the prism of centre-periphery relations and regional power constellations; ethnic politics in the Republic of Mari El; the ethno-political conflict in Mari El; and the impact of transnational minority co-operation on ethnic politics.

 

 
Modes of study 

Lectures (16 hours) and a written examination (3 credits). Students may choose to write an optional research essay (6-8 pages, 2 credits) on a Finno-Ugrian -related topic of their choice that will be evaluated by Paul Fryer (Geography).
