Ingushetia, the Speech of the Voiceless

Saturday, October 27, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

Sponsored By: 
Asian Studies Center, Center for Russian and East European Studies and Global Studies Center

The conflict in the North Caucasus has echoed throughout the Middle East, Europe, and even in the USA (Boston bombing). The Russians claim it is just another page of the war on terror.

The general consensus is that the conflict has its origins in Muslim resistance to Russian colonization in the 19th century, known as the Caucasian war. Is it actually that simple though? No one doubts that the Caucasian war took place, but was the resistance really Muslim?
