The studentship, entitled 'Emerging Indigineities in the Russian North' queries the claim of indigeneity which is often thought to be confined to settler states overseas. This studentship will investigate emergent indigineities in the urban Russian North, with special reference to how these new movements articulate new collective identities transcending traditional national narratives. The PhD candidate will work closely with community organizations that are lobbying for the recognition of their status, and will similarly ground the fieldwork in a reading of published historical and unpublished archival texts. The project will work parallel to the established team working on the history of etnos theory on a special example of etnos theorising - the indigenous case.
