Dear all !
Hope that you enjoy summer wherever you are !
There are several things which I want to share with you:
1. I just came from Buryatia and Zabaikal’sky krai (former Chita region) and attended some grandiose events in July , such as the next session of the World Convention of Mongols in UU ( http://www.infpol.ru/news/670/38458.php http://www.infpol.ru/news/670/38363.php http://www.infpol.ru/news/673/37780.php ) and transborder Buryat ethnic festival “Altargana”, which took place in UB (http://www.altargana.org http://zabinfo.ru/modules.php) . You can see some reports on these websites.
2. At the last workshop in July we were talking about some Bibliography we can share. Gregory ! Is it possible to create in “All Categories” one more position called “Bibliography” or smth like that ?
For some historical reading on North Asian Borderlands I can recommend the following article by P. Perdue (1998) “Boundaries, Maps and Movement: Chinese, Russian and Mongolian Empires in Early Modern Central Eurasia” ( Three_Empires_Perdue) .
