Kenny Linden, "Collectivization in Mongolia, 1929-1960: Current Work and Prospects for Future Research" Graduate Student Brown Bag Talk

Tue, Dec 2, 12:15 pm
Ballantine Hall 004

Kenny Linden, a graduate student in the Central Eurasian Studies Department, will be giving a talk entitled "Collectivization in Mongolia, 1929-1960: Current Work and Prospects for Future Research" on Tuesday, December 2nd at 12:15 in Ballantine Hall 004.

"In 1929, at the same time as the Soviet Union, Mongolia began efforts to collectivize its herding economy. However, collectivization in Mongolia was stopped and declared a failure in 1932. It was only in 1954 when efforts to collectivize the livestock began to be implemented again. Six years later collectivization was declared complete. I will discuss my thesis on representations and memory of Mongolian collectivization. I will also discuss future research plans for my dissertation on collectivization in Mongolia."

This is a talk in the new Graduate Student Brown Bag Talks, designed to allow students to share their research, work, experiences and goals with their peers.
