206 Ingraham Hall
Ideal modern nation states have clearly defined borders and a sedentary population. People without a defined domicile who regularly cross the national borders easily put such an order into jeopardy. This presentation explores the problem of transhumance in the Soviet South Caucasus in the 1920s and the beginning of the 1930s. Please join us at 3:45 for light refreshments.
