The Euro­pean Hand­book of Cen­tral Asian Stud­ies: His­to­ry, Pol­i­tics, and Soci­eties
BuchcoverThis hand­book is the first col­lec­tion of com­pre­hen­sive teach­ing mate­ri­als for teach­ers and stu­dents of Cen­tral Asian Stud­ies (CAS) with a strong ped­a­gog­ic dimen­sion. It presents 22 chap­ters, clus­tered around five themes, with con­tri­bu­tions from more than 19 schol­ars, all lead­ing experts in the field of CAS and Eurasian Stud­ies. This col­lec­tion is not only a ref­er­ence work for schol­ars branch­ing out to dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines of CAS but also for schol­ars from oth­er dis­ci­plines broad­en­ing their scope to CAS. It address­es post-colo­nial frame­works and also untan­gles top­ics from their ‘Sovi­et’ ref­er­ence frame. It aims to de-exoti­cize the region and draws par­al­lels to Euro­pean or to his­tor­i­cal­ly Euro­pean-occu­pied ter­ri­to­ries. In each chap­ter, the hand­book pro­vides a con­cise but nuanced overview of the top­ics cov­ered, in which way these have been approached by the main­stream lit­er­a­ture, and points out pit­falls, myths, and new insights, pro­vid­ing back­ground knowl­edge about Cen­tral Asia to read­ers and inter­twine this with an advanced lev­el of insight to leave the read­ers equipped with a strong foun­da­tion to approach more spe­cial­ized sources either in class­room set­tings or by self-study. In addi­tion, the book offers a com­pre­hen­sive glos­sary, list of used abbre­vi­a­tions, overview of intend­ed learn­ing out­comes, and a smart index (dis­tin­guish­ing between names, loca­tions, con­cepts, and events). A list of record­ed lec­tures to be found on YouTube will accom­pa­ny the hand­book either as instruc­tion mate­ri­als for teach­ers or visu­al aids for stu­dents. Since the authors them­selves record­ed the lec­tures relat­ed to their own chap­ters, this pro­vides the oppor­tu­ni­ty to engage in a more per­son­al­ized way with the authors. This project is being devel­oped in the frame­work of the EISCAS project (, co-fund­ed by the Eras­mus + Pro­gram of the Euro­pean Union.

Dos­to­evsky and the ethics of nar­ra­tive form: sus­pense, clo­sure, minor char­ac­ters
BuchcoverThree ques­tions of nov­el­is­tic form pre­oc­cu­pied Fyo­dor Dos­to­evsky through­out his career: how to build sus­pense, how to end a nar­ra­tive effec­tive­ly, and how to dis­trib­ute atten­tion among major and minor char­ac­ters. For Dos­to­evsky, these were much more than prac­ti­cal ques­tions about nov­el­is­tic craft; they were eth­i­cal ques­tions as well. Dos­to­evsky and the Ethics of Nar­ra­tive Form traces Dostoevsky’s inde­fati­ga­ble inves­ti­ga­tions into the eth­i­cal impli­ca­tions of his own for­mal choic­es. Draw­ing on his drafts, note­books, and writ­ings on aes­thet­ics, Gre­ta Matzn­er-Gore argues that Dos­to­evsky wove the moral and for­mal ques­tions that obsessed him into the fab­ric of his last three nov­els: Demons, The Ado­les­cent, and The Broth­ers Kara­ma­zov. In so doing, he antic­i­pat­ed some of the most press­ing debates tak­ing place in the study of nar­ra­tive ethics today.
