This upper-level topical colloquium explores current issues in Central Asia, focusing on the conflicts and tensions that have shaped this region’s recent history. Particular emphasis will be placed on understanding processes of cultural change and adaptation; the historical emergence and contemporary meanings of political Islam and modern nationalism; the relationship between indigenous communities and imperial states (especially China and Russia/USSR); economic, environmental, and ecological concerns; and various forms of internal stratification and hierarchy, especially along lines of region, class, gender, and ethnicity. Grades will be based on class participation and written work (two book reviews and an issue analysis).
