Between Russia and Germany. National and political consciousness-raising of Latvians in the 19th century

Sandra Użule-Fons

Abstract

The aim of the theses is to present the national building process in Latvian society in Livland and Kurland versus the multidimensional dominance of Baltic Germans and Russians in 1861-1905 (culture, public authority, religion, education and other consequences). This perspective allows to present the development of Latvian political thought and the political ideas of Latvian intellectuals in this period: from the precursors of national thought to conservative, liberal and social-democratic representatives. Analyzing the changes over about fifty years, the author shows how the ethnic nation transformed into a political nation and what was the role of Latvian national consciousness in this process.
