Svetlana Jacquesson History Making in Central and Northern Eurasia Contemporary Actors and Practices (Iran - Turan 15).
Wiesbaden: Reichert 2016.

This volume seeks to extend our understanding of how knowledge about the past was and is being produced in central and northern Eurasia. Its authors use the methods of several disciplines literary studies, history, anthropology, area studies in an attempt to seize all the complexity of "history making" as a social phenomenon and to locate the actors and practices of history making in central and northern Eurasia within a broader context of scholarly reflections on what past or history is, and how it matters.
