Abstract:This dissertation considers the Soviet policy of rooting both socialist and nationalist messages in public performance culture as part of a modernization campaign to promote nationalism, a constructed national vision, and a national state in Kazakstan. In this image of the Kazak nation, the state enabled the Kazak elite to locate themselves in the Soviet system. Through the evolution of this elite from participants in a Soviet ethnographic project to the realization of a refined nationality culture in the 1936 festival of Kazak arts, the idea of a modern Kazak nation emerged. Rather than an imperial technology, the Soviets devised a new type of nation in a system of nations where the expression of unique national cultures was central and essential. The evolutionary movement of the Kazak nation is part of a larger discussion of nationality formation in the twentieth century. This dissertation offers new methods for and insights into the broader study of nationalism by placing music at the center of the discourse and offering alternatives to the European-centered model of nations. Ultimately, my research addresses more than a study of Central Asia by employing an example of national and state formation emblematic of Soviet nationality policy writ large. In the midst of massive social changes in the 1920s and 1930s, the ideology of socialism, and the radical imposition of a new economy in Kazakstan, music continued to play an instrumental role in providing a stable cultural link to the traditional world that was being rapidly transformed. By tracing the path of cultural encounter from the ethnographic discovery of early collectors of Kazak music to the cultural transmission of these artifacts through nationalist terms in 1930s, this dissertation reveals the mechanisms of Soviet power and attitudes towards the development of non-Russian nationalisms in the creation of the Kazak national republic.
