Adeeb Khalid will discuss the complex interaction of local elites and the Soviet state in the age of the Russian revolution in Central Asia. The talk will explore ways in which a project of cultural reform articulated on the colonial periphery of the Russian empire was transformed by revolution in the metropole. The paper will explore what revolution meant to indigenous elites, and trace their fate through the tumultuous decade oft he 1920s.
