"The political shocks of the 2014 Ukrainian crisis have been felt in many former Soviet countries, not least Latvia, where over 35% of the population are native Russian speakers. At a time when analysts and commentators are unsure about Russia's future plans to intervene on behalf of their 'compatriots', this study provides a detailed political and cultural analysis of Russian-speaking identity in Latvia. By using Russian-speakers in Latvia as a specific case study, this volume also offers a fresh methodological approach to the study of discourses and discursive strategies. It outlines a coherent methodology to study the evolution of discourses over time, rather than a single de-contextualized and static time period."

About the Author:


Ammon Cheskin is Lecturer in Nationalism and Identity in the Department of Central and East European Studies, the University of Glasgow.

Review:


"Cheskin's book is a valuable contribution to the burgeoning literature on discursive approaches to identity formation. The author convincingly shows how Russians in Latvia have managed to carve out an identity space between nationalizing Latvian discourses, and Moscow's 'compatriot' discourse. This space has gradually opened up since Latvian independence, making room for a variety of hybrid Russian-Latvian identities." -- Pål Kolstø, University of Oslo

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This project is the culmination of 7 years of intensive research into Russian-speaking identities in Latvia. Covering a period up to and including the Ukrainian crises of 2014, the research examines the complex relationships between diverse groups of Russian speakers, the Latvian state, the Russian Federation, and Latvia s (often competing) transnational political and cultural spaces. The empirical analysis is grounded on a theoretical model of discourse analysis that is specifically designed to account for temporal change. Utilising this framework, the study traces how Russian-speaking identity positions have been evolving in Latvia since the late Soviet period. By mapping adjustments in how the Latvian and Russian states relate to an imagined community of Russian-speakers, the analysis points to the emergence of distinct identity strategies that simultaneously create, reinvent, and rupture discursive ties with Latvia, Russia, and Europe. In a time when many will question the loyalty of Russian speakers to their various host states this book provides a timely, scholarly account of ethnic politics in Latvia.
