Diliara Brileva, “Alternative Women’s Discourse in Tatar Satirical Magazines in Late Imperial Russia”, lecture

12 April 2024, 19:30


Following the mass appearance of the periodical press of the Muslim Tatars in late Imperial Russia the life of Muslim women and the problems they faced in everyday life became one of the most discussed. The lecture explores how Tatar humorous and satirical magazines (textually and visually) raised and discussed the problems of women in the Tatar Muslim community of late imperial Russia and how language was instrumentalized in these discussions. Moreover, lecture looks at how Tatar satirical periodicals used gender discourse to resist capitalism between the two Russian revolutions, continuing the story of the objectification of Muslim women.

The lecture is realized in collaboration with ZMO and Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
