Baku Neighborhoods during the Interwar Period in Soviet Azerbaijan

My research will focus on Baku neighborhoods between World War One and World War Two. As spaces where popular custom, belief, identity, and memory express themselves spatially, neighborhoods represent ideal sites for the study of ethnic relations and identities. In placing my focus here, my goal is to capture the horizontal dimension of ethnic conflict and/or collaboration. Whereas existing studies of Soviet nationality policy have a vertical thrust in that they focus on the relationship between the center and the periphery, my goal is to explore inter-ethnic, particularly intra- and inter-neighborhood relations as affected but not necessarily predetermined by the policies of 'the center.'
