Locating the School: Contests over the meaning and importance of "Place" in rural Kyrgyzstan in the 20th Century

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper is interested in the changing relationship between schooling and place among the nomadic peoples of Central Asia, particularly Kyrgyzstan. The goal is to explain how formal schools provided/compelled during the Soviet period were involved with creating communities and a new stratification system in the village; as well as how these dynamics are currently being challenged by forces of globalization. The paper theoretically considers how place is constructed in nomadic versus settled populations and now under globalization; a new version of "placelessness(?)" is evolving. We use historical and ethnographic resources to construct this narrative. Historical perspectives involve primary and secondary print sources for much of the pre-Soviet understandings of place, compared to grandparents and parents of children in the south of Kyrgyzstan today, as well as village elders, former school directors and teachers. Data are still in the processing/analysis phase.
