Ambiguous Legacies: Ethnic Geopolitics in Crimea

Central Asia Workshop

Thursday, March 06, 2014
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

This week in CAW, Ali Hamdan will be leading us in a discussion of readings about the geopolitical history of Crimea. This should be especially interesting given the current events in Ukraine.

The Central Asia Workshop is an interdisciplinary discussion group sponsored by the UCLA Program on Central Asia. The goal of the workshop is to encourage research on Central Asia by creating a space where students, faculty, and affiliates can discuss research, theory and ideas with others who have experience or interest in the region. The workshop is a forum for exploring recent research and classical and contemporary theoretical perspectives that inform work in Central Asia. Weekly discussions are led by members on a rotating basis, and topics are determined by group interests.
