HIS 367 - Inner Asian Nomads to 1500 CE
Inner Asian Nomads to 1500 CE
Prerequisites: NONE

This class surveys the history, society, and culture of Inner Asian nomads and investigates how they influenced, and were influenced by, their sedentary neighbors. For centuries, the Huns, Turks, and Mongols were in contact -- and often conflict -- with the sedentary states of China, the Middle East, Indian and Eastern Europe, culminating with the continent-wide conquests of Genghis Khan and his descendants. From our perspective in an increasingly globalized world economy, we can learn much from how these 'barbarians' moved people, ideas, technologies, and diseases across continents centuries ago. This class pays particular attention to the types of sources that have survived from these encounters in order to discuss how non-literate societies are remembered in history.
