Vestnik – Issue 10, Fall 2011

Vestnik was launched by SRAS in 2004 as one of the world’s first online academic journals focused on showcasing student research. We welcome and invite papers written by undergraduates, graduates, and postgraduates. Research on any subject related to the broad geographic area outlined above is accepted. If you have written solid research eligible for publication according to the guidelines listed here, please submit it.

In this, its tenth issue, Vestnik brings you a wide range of articles on diverse subjects. Youth Crime under Perestroika looks at the spike in youth crime that occurred as the USSR suffered its political and economic collapse. Recurring Themes in the Kyrgyz Revolutions looks at the social, economic, and political issues that have been prominent in Kyrgyzstan’s two most recent revolutions – issues that continue to be of importance as the new government forms.

In literature, Redemption for Dostoevsky and Nietzsche compares and contrasts the philosophies of the great Russian novelist and thinker with the renowned German philosopher. Russian Literature in Kyrgyzstan at the Beginning of the 21st Century offers a student translation of a scholarly article on modern authors working to produce Russian-language literature in Kyrgyzstan. Lastly, Чьи эти прилагательные? Russian Possessive Adjectives gives an in-depth look at those fascinating little adjectives!
