This spring term faculty from UNC, Pitt, and beyond, will be convening once per month (Fridays at 4 pm EST) over Zoom to take a fresh look at the 'classics' of Central Asian history.

Our aim will be not only to critique earlier waves of scholarship, but also to consider which findings stood the test of time and shape more recent studies.
