It appears that the Australian National Univ. has set up a Mongolian Studies Centre. You know that I’m jealous, but terrific to see this level of institutionalization of attention to Mongolia. The centre is headed up by Li Narangoa. I’ve long been aware of her work on Mongolia (and also Japan, a kindred spirit), but no less about some of the other people involved in the centre.
I wish the colleagues at ANU all the best and hope that some day we might be able to create something similar at UBC.
