CFP: Migrations in Mongol Eurasia: People, Ideas, Artifacts

International Conference, December 18-20, 2017

Organizers: Michal Biran and Jonathan Brack

The creation, expansion, consolidation, and dissolution of the Mongol Empire (1206-1368) generated a huge amount of human migrations, followed by animals, artifacts, ideas and institutions. The ripples of these movements continued to exert their influence long after the Empire collapsed in the mid- 14th century. This multifaceted and complex array of
Eurasian mobtilities will be the focus of our forthcoming conference. The conference seeks to illuminate various facets of migrations, of people, both groups and individuals; knowledge, including science, art, religion, technologies, political culture, and imperial institutions; as well as material goods.
