Russian/Soviet Perspectives on Islam

Preparation for online publication of translations of approximately 3,000 pages of documents testifying to Soviet and Russian perspectives on Islam. (36 months)

George Mason University has launched a major new international multidisciplinary scholarly program, the Russian/Soviet Perspectives on Islam (RPI). The project, with primary support from the Luce Foundation, seeks to facilitate scholarly and public understanding of cultural coexistence and conflict in multi-ethnic and multi-confessional societies through the digitization, exploration and dissemination of a large document collection on the encounter and evolving relationship between the secular state and the Muslim regions, groups, individuals, and ideologies on the territory of the former Soviet Union and neighboring countries. Since the Luce Foundation grant does not include support for translation, the present application for NEH's Scholarly Editions and Translations Grant seeks to expand the impact of that program through the translation and online publication of a carefully-chosen subset of those documents.
