İngilizce , Kitap , Latin / 19 Aralık 2017

Hakan S. KIRIMLI. Brill Academic Publishers, Incorporated,   ISBN : 978-9004105096 This volume dwells on the process of the formation of the modern national identity among the Crimean Tatars during the first decades of this century. One of the basic postulates of this study is that the national movements played a crucial and definitive role in this process. Therefore, the formation of national identity among the Crimean Tatars is traced and analyzed in the course of the successive national movements of the period. Although the main focus of the study is on the period between 1905-1916, the subject-matter is complemented by a general portrayal of Crimean Tatar society during the first century of Russian rule over the Crimea and an analytical account of the two formative decades of Ismail Bey Gaspıralı’s reforms prior to 1905. The study devotes meticulous care in placing the subject within the context of the parallel processes of other Turkic and/or Muslim peoples.

Beyond Memory : The Crimean Tatars’ Deportation and Return
İngilizce , Kitap , Latin / 17 Aralık 2017

Greta UEHLING. In the final days of World War II, Stalin ordered the deportation of the entire Crimean Tatar population, nearly 200,000 people. Beyond Memory offers the first ethnographic exploration of this event, as well as the 50 year movement for repatriation. Many of the Crimean Tatars have returned in a process that involves squatting on vacant land and self-immolation. Uehling asks how they became willing to die for their national collectivity. She provides a fine-grained analysis of how “memories,” sentiments, and dreams of a homeland never seen came to be shared. Uehling suggests the second-generation has a surprisingly instrumental role to play. The way children correct and intervene in parental narratives, dissidents challenge interrogators, and speakers borrow and trade lines index this social aspect of memory. This book offers the first in-depth, ethnographic exploration of the Crimean Tatars’ experience of deportation from Ukraine at the end of World War II, examining how “memories” and sentiments were created and came to shape the dramatic repatriation to historic lands, which involved squatting and self-immolation.   İçindekiler :   Orthographic Note ix Acknowledgments xi List of Illustrations xiii Introduction 1 (24) The Lay of the Historic Land 25 (24) The Faces of…
