The Hungry Steppe: Famine, Violence and the Making of Soviet Kazakhstan

The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress, Washington, DC
Thursday, October 20, 2016 - 4:00 PM

Professor Sarah Cameron, a Kluge Fellow at the Library of Congress, will be discussing an episode of Stalinist social engineering, the Kazakh famine of 1930-33, which led to the death of more than 1.5 million people, a quarter of Soviet Kazakhstan's population. Using memoirs, oral history accounts, and archival documents, she explores the stories of those who lived through the famine, asking how this crisis reshaped Soviet Kazakhstan and what it meant to be "Kazakh," and how the case of the Kazakh famine alters understandings of development and nation-building under Stalin.

The lecture will be held in the Thomas Jefferson Building, Room LJ-119 on the first floor.

This event is free and open to the public.
