Elena Smolarz: Unterwegs wider Willen. Mobilität in den Schilderungen russischer Sklaven im Buchara des 18. und 19. Jahrhunderts, pp. 85-112

The slave trade in Central Asia was a crucial factor in the European power discourse in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The debates regarding the enslavement of Russians and the slave trade in Bukhara and Khiva were instrumentalized to establish “the secure border” and to legitimize Russian expansion in Central Asia in the nineteenth century. This paper is a contribution to the research on slavery in Bukhara.
