The resurgence of national and historical awareness among the people of what was once the USSR has been nowhere stronger than among the Russians themselves. Some of the larger projects of rediscovery amount to a reinterpretation of traditional culture. This carefully annotated collection of recent studies of Russian folk religion, village organization and family life, including the rituals associated with childbirth, special attention to women's roles and to the specificity of Siberia in Russian culture, will be a revelation to a wide array of readers. It is intended for use not only in anthropology departments but more widely interdisciplinary courses in Russian studies, peasant studies and women's studies.

Es macht einen Unterschied, ob jemand in Saratov, Moskau, Wien oder New York über Geschlechterverhältnisse in Russland forscht. In diesem Band wird die globale Arbeitsteilung in den Sozial- und Geisteswissenschaften diskutiert: Wo entstehen Theorien, wo werden sie angewendet? Wer liefert – oder ist selbst – empirisches Datenmaterial? Welchen Stellenwert haben in Russland arbeitende Forscher_innen in dieser Konstellation? Anhand zahlreicher Interviews mit russischen, amerikanischen, deutschen, englischen und österreichischen Protagonist_innen dieses Feldes werden die Grenzen und Möglichkeiten transnationaler, russlandbezogener Geschlechterforschung aufgezeigt. Darüber hinaus gibt die Autorin Einblicke in die aktuelle Situation der Geschlechterforschung in Russland. When conducting research on gender relations in Russia it makes a difference whether one is located in Saratov, Moscow, Vienna or New York. The author tackles questions of the global division of labour within the social sciences and humanities: Where are theories developed, where do they get applied? Who delivers – or even becomes – the empirical data for research? What is the status of Russia-based scholars within this constellation? The limits and possibilities of transnational Russia-related Gender Studies are expounded, based on the analysis of numerous interviews with Russian, American, Austrian, German, and English protagonists in this field. Furthermore, the reader is provided with insights into the current state of affairs of Gender Studies in Russia.

Many Russian women of the late 19th and early 20th centuries tried to find authentic religious, marital, professional, and political experiences. Some very remarkable ones found these things in varying degrees, while others sought unsuccessfully but no less desperately to transcend the generations-old restrictions imposed by church, state, village, class, and gender. Like a Slavic Downton Abbey, this book tells the stories, not just of their outward lives, but of their hearts and minds, their voices and dreams, their amazing accomplishments against overwhelming odds, and their roles as feminists and avant-gardists in shaping modern Russia and, indeed, the twentieth century in the West. In their own words and images, and each in their own unique way, these remarkable Russian women construct a fascinating tapestry of a culture at the crossroads of modernity and on the brink of catastrophe.

Mit Christoph Schmidts Band gibt es eine kompakte Einführung in die Geschichte des Zarenreichs. Gut zu lesen führt die Darstellung durch annähernd vier Jahrhunderte russischer Geschichte. Im Mittelpunkt des Forschungsteils stehen vier grundlegende Aspekte: Geografie, Ethnologie, Orthodoxie und Autokratie. Ein idealer Leitfaden durch den aktuellen Stand der Forschung ist das thematisch gegliederte Quellen- und Literaturverzeichnis. Aus der Presse "... Schmidts Kompetenz zeigt sich vor allem dort, wo er sich auf seine eigenen Forschungen über Staat und Gesellschaft im Russland der Frühen Neuzeit berufen kann. Wer eine knappe, gleichwohl erschöpfende Zusammenfassung der historischen Literatur über Autokratie, Adel und Ständeverfassung im Russland des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts erwartet, wird nicht enttäuscht werden." Jörg Baberowski in: Geschichte und Wissenschaft und Unterricht (Heft 11, November 2007)

Die Revolutionare von 1917 traten mit dem Ziel an, in der kunftigen klassenlosen, gerechten Gesellschaft auch die Gleichstellung der Frauen zu verwirklichen. Zahlreiche Gesetze und Verordnungen wurden erlassen, begleitet von lebhaften Debatten uber die Neuordnung des Alltagslebens und die Rolle der Frau im Sozialismus. Der Diskurs uber die Emanzipation endete 1930 mit dem Erlass der Doktrin uber die Losung der Frauenfrage, gleichzeitig wurde die begleitende Organisation, die Frauenabteilung beim Zentralkomitee der Kommunistischen Partei, ersatzlos geschlossen. An die Stelle der emanzipierten neuen Frau trat das Bild der materiell gleichgestellten, in den Arbeitsprozess gleichberechtigt eingebundenen Frau, die zugleich ihren traditionellen Rollen als Mutter und Ehefrau gerecht zu werden hatte. Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht exemplarisch das Alltagsleben von Moskauer Arbeiterinnen im Spannungsfeld zwischen offizieller Frauenpolitik, individuellen Lebensentwurfen und materiellen Bedingungen. Carmen Scheide, Jahrgang 1965, studierte Geschichte und Slavistik in Munschen, Freiburg i. Br. und Moskau, Promotion 1999.
