Abstract

The Harriman Institute for Russian, Eurasian, and Eastern European Studies at Columbia University sponsored this international workshop to discuss the value of using archival materials to study the relationship between Russia and the Islamic world. The event was organized in connection with a research project titled "Russia and Islam: Religion, the State and Modernity during and after the Age of Empire," directed by Mark Mazower (Columbia University). It was attended by interested members of the public, undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and scholars based in Canada, Georgia, Russia, Turkey, and the United States.
