Symposium: Mongolian Responses to Globalization

Department for Mongolian and Tibetan Studies
Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn

January 15-17, 2014

Organizer: Ines Stolpe

The event is designed as a workshop in order to foster lively discussions on issues and topics concerning contemporary Mongolia – including their historical backgrounds. Our primary goal is a productive exchange of ideas. We will focus on: processes of social, economic, political and cultural change within shifting global contexts and horizons, new orientations (partially caused by foreign/new influences), changing normative ideas (including new ideals, neo-traditional tendencies), as well as processes of ‘mongolisation’. As framework we will use the multiple and entangled relations between pre-socialist, socialist and post socialist notions of globalisation.
