Workshop on Uzbek Literary Politics in the Context of American scholars: Analyse, Interpretation, an
(Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)
Twentieth century Uzbek literature exhibits both a national revival by the Jadid (Reformist) writers and the ideological struggle's discourse of the Soviet government in the 1920's and 1930's. After the elimination of the Jadid writers in the second half of 1930, when the Soviet literary policy started to dominate Uzbek literary activities, it forced the writers to produce more allusive and metaphorical literature in order to escape the state censorship. The literary works which articulated such ideas have been studied not only by Uzbek but by foreign, including American scholars.
