Central Asian Memoirs

Browse Documents Teaching Materials

The “Central Asian Memoirs” project aims to significantly widen the spectrum of Central Asian voices in the historiography of Soviet Central Asia. Due to a dearth of truly consultative sources related to the region’s output of memoirs, most researchers gain access to a limited and essentially random collection of texts from the region. By collecting and digitizing this body of memoirs, this project makes these unique sources available to historiographical enquiry in a systematic and more complete fashion. At the moment, the site mostly hosts memoirs from the post-war period in Tajikistan.
