dc.description.abstract This thesis studies Russian captivity narratives about Central Asia produced during the nineteenth century. Focusing on the captivity theme, this thesis explores diverse individual captivity stories written within the grand context of Russia’s expansion into Central Asia. It aims to show that captivity narratives not only tell of the vulnerability and uncertainty of the empire during its expansion, but also reveal the rapid shift of power in Central Asia in the nineteenth century.
