This is a follow-up to Episode 1 that I originally recorded thinking they would go together, then decided should appear as separate episodes. I spoke with John Heathershaw of Exeter University about his recent paper with David W. Montgomery The Myth of Post-Soviet Muslim Radicalization in the Central Asian Republics. We discussed what we do and don’t know about radicalization, Islamic revival in Central Asia, and the use of Islam in the political sphere in the region by state and non-state actors.
See resources from Episode 1 for links.
Audio for this episode may be a little rockier - I’m still learning the editing, and we did have some connection problems during the call. Bear with me as I learn the ropes of podcasting.
