Central Asia Retro Reading Group

05 Feb 2021


Central Asia Retro Reading Group
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.

If you are a graduate student or faculty interested in joining the fray, please email Eren Tasar (etasar@email.unc.edu) and your name will be added to the email list.

For the first session on February 5 we will discuss Richard Pierce's Russian Central Asia, 1867–1917: A Study in Colonial Rule (1960).
