Word and Image invokes and honors the scholarly contributions of Gary Marker. Twenty scholars from Russia, the United Kingdom, Italy, Ukraine and the United States examine some of the main themes of Marker’s scholarship on Russia―literacy, education, and printing; gender and politics; the importance of visual sources for historical study; and the intersections of religious and political discourse in Imperial Russia. A biography of Marker, a survey of his scholarship, and a list of his publications complete the volume.

About the Author:

Daniel H. Kaiser is Professor of History Emeritus at Grinnell College. Kaiser studied Russian history at the University of Chicago, specializing in pre-Petrine Russia, especially its legal and social institutions. He is the author of The Growth of the Law in Medieval Russia (Princeton, 1980), and translator and editor of The Laws of Rus’: Tenth to Fifteenth Centuries; editor of The Workers’ Revolution in Russia, 1917: The View From Below (Cambridge, 1987); and with Gary J. Marker editor of Reinterpreting Russian History 860-1860s (Oxford, 1994). He has held a Guggenheim Fellowship, as well as awards from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Council of Learned Societies, and the Woodrow Wilson Center. Kaiser was a visitor at Darwin College, Cambridge, and has held visiting appointments at UCLA and Nanjing University, China.

Review:

"This invigorating collection is both a tribute to historian Gary Marker and a snapshot of the professional cohort that is his community. Ably and thoughtfully edited, Word and Image in Russian History builds upon acclaimed aspects of Marker’s research: the impact of print culture on society, representations of St. Catherine in relation to female rule, and the role of religion in the development of Petrine political discourse. Penned by an international assembly of scholars, and graced with biographical and historiographical essays devoted to Marker’s life and works, the Festschrift will delight contemporaries and remind later generations of a gifted predecessor." (Elise Wirtschafter, Professor of Russian History, Cal Poly Pomona)

"This rich collection, featuring a distinguished cast of international scholars, celebrates the legacy of Gary Marker, outstanding historian of Russia and Russian culture. It includes twenty-one articles on a broad spectrum of topics inspired by Prof. Marker’s wideranging interests. Word and Image in Russian History illustrates and defines some of the most noteworthy issues occupying contemporary students of Russia. Its varied and engaging studies span the seventeenth through early twentieth centuries and encompass Russian legal and political discourse; the publication of travel and horticultural books; portraiture and art collecting; women in politics and business; literacy and education, religious and secular; conflicts among the Orthodox, Uniates, and Jews; civil society and politics. Nicely illustrated and including essays on Prof. Marker’s professional life and accomplishments, as well as a bibliography of his works, Word and Image reflects both Prof. Marker’s manifold accomplishments and demonstrates their continuing capacity to provoke and inspire." (Marcus C. Levitt, Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures, University of Southern California)
