Inner Eurasia Then & Now: Legacies of Thought, Space, and Empire Friday, March 27, 2015

Friday, March 27, 2015
9:30 am - 5:00 pm
Richard Ettinghausen Library, Kagop Kevorkian Center, NYU

Please join the Harriman Institute and New York University’s Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies for the 8th Annual Graduate Student Conference presented by The Organization for the Advancement of Studies of Inner Eurasian Societies (OASIES) at Columbia University, New York University, and Princeton University.

Inner Eurasia has been, and continues to be, at the crossroads of civilizations and power contestations. Much of these lands were once dominated by the Mongol, Russian, and Soviet empires, and at the frontier of Chinese and Ottoman influence. This cultural and institutional inheritance continues to impact the region. Bearing this in mind, the conference asks: how does the framework of legacies allow us to identify patterns across the region, and what effects have the region’s unique position and history had on processes, from revolution to reform?

The conference considers Eurasia past and present, spanning from the Black Sea to Mongolia, from Siberia to South Asia. Stressing multi-disciplinarity, submissions have been welcomed from a variety of departments, programs, and centers.
