1. Karimova, Liliya. "Russian? Tatar? American? Formation, Communication, and Maintenance of Ethnic Identity Among Russian Tatars Living in the United States" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Dresden International Congress Centre, Dresden, Germany, Jun 16, 2006 Online <PDF>. 2019-10-19 <>
Publication Type: Works in Progress
Abstract: Most of the world’s ethnic Tatars live in Tatarstan, a former Soviet Republic and an autonomous state in Russia today. Once an independent Muslim nation, Tatarstan was conquered by the Russian Tsar, Ivan IV (a.k.a. “Ivan the Terrible”) in 1552. For centuries, the relationship between Russians and Tatars has been complex. The collapse of the former Soviet Union introduced a new dynamic into Russian-Tatar relations. The possibility for Russian Tatars to travel aboard, to meet members of the Tatar Diaspora, and to observe the rights that ethnic minorities enjoy overseas resulted in a strong desire among Russian Tatars, those living in Russia and abroad, to revise their political, socioeconomic and cultural status within Russia.

In this study, I will examine how Russian Tatars living in the United States define, communicate, and maintain their ethnic identity. As my research data, I will use messages posted on an online forum Tatar USA between January 2005 and 2006. The Tatar USA forum is part of the Tatars in America website (, created by a group of young Russian Tatars who arrived in the United States as students or employees within the last ten years and have been living in America since then.

By employing grounded theory in my study of ethnic identity among Russian Tatars living in the United States – participants of the online forum Tatar USA – I hope to identify a central descriptive narrative of the Tatar ethnic identity, as it is expressed, communicated, and maintained by the forum participants.

Abstract: Recently, while “annexing” the Crimean territory of Ukraine, Russia suggested ethno-federalism for Russian minority in Donbass region of Ukraine. While Russia itself is an “ethno-federal” state on paper, what is the real state of minority rights in Russia? There are not sufficient comprehensive evaluation of minority rights in the post-Soviet space, while there are several case studies. I would like to compare the cases of Volga tatars, Chechens, Crimean Tatars and Russians in Crimea and Donbass before Russia intervened Ukraine in 2014 to describe what levels of minority rights these groups had between 1991 and 2014, and would like to form an independent benchmark for evaluating the level of minority rights in the post-Soviet space. Secondly, I would like to explain the differences in attaining minority rights by utilizing the method of small–N macro-causal comparison (Skocpol and Somers, 1980) I will analyse different configurations of certain variables such as the centre-minority relations, minority strategies, institutional framework and discourses of minority recognition of the state to explain different level of attainment of minority rights.The sources of the study will come from primary documents related to the subject matter, cas studies on these minorities, as well as interviews with bureaucrats and social movements in these countries. This paper is part of a larger study funded by the Turkish Scientific Foundation (TUBİTAK) for two years.

3. Bospflug, Elizabeth. "'Tatar Slavophilism': Writing Tatars into, then out of, Russian History" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASEEES Convention, Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, <Not Available>. 2019-10-19 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: At various points during the twentieth century, Tatar intellectuals have made the case that Tatars are fundamental to the existence of "Russia," however it was conceived at the time. In integrating Tatar nationalism into a multi-ethnic Russian state project, Tatar writers sought to preserve national distinction while rejecting political separatism. One observer called this phenomenon “Tatar Slavophilism.” I follow this line of argument through Tatar historical writing from the 1920’s through the present, as Tatars tacked with the political winds between roles as protagonists and victims in Russian history.

5. Deluga, Waldemar. "Art of Minorities in Polish Kingdom, Lithuanian Duchy, and Principality of Moldavia: Jewish, Armenian, Greek, and Tatars, 14th-16th Centuries" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASEEES Convention, Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-10-19 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This research concerns the art of ethnic minorities from the fourteenth to the sixteenth century in the Polish Kingdom, Lithuanian Duchy, and Principality of Moldovia. It will discuss a historical context of ethnic groups, which became part of the Polish Kingdom by coming from Western Europe (Jews), Eastern Europe (Armenian and Tatars) and the Balkans (Greeks).  This discussion addresses historical events, which allowed/forced these groups to settle in other territories, and social and cultural problems they encountered in new societies. The major discussion will examine significant artistic monuments to demonstrate how these groups connected their own cultural traditions with the local culture and values. Specific attention will be given to illuminated manuscripts, since they are the most "canonical" forms of the Jewish, Armenian, Greek, and Tatars’ cultures.
