CAW: Transnational Afghanistan

Readings and Discussion with Nile Green, UCLA

Monday, January 23, 2012
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

The Central Asia Workshop is an interdisciplinary discussion group sponsored by the UCLA Program on Central Asia (http://www.international.ucla.edu/asia/centralasia/). The goal of the workshop is to encourage graduate student research on Central Asia by creating a space where students and interested faculty 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. Past discussion topics have included Tatar language and identity; environmental activism in Central Asia; mental health, religion and healing in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan; imagining modernity; gendered national identity; and the Uighurs of Xinjiang. 

The Central Asia Workshop meets every two weeks in 10367 Bunche from 12:00 to 1:30PM.
