Memo #181 (Video)
Featuring Julian Dierkes – julian.dierkes [at] ubc.ca
In this interview, Dr. Julian Dierkes introduces the edited volume “Change in Democratic Mongolia: Social Relations, Health, Mobile Pastoralism, and Mining.” By tracing rapid change in Mongolia in four broad fields of contemporary social relations, the chapters in this volume will elucidate the state of contemporary Mongolia and help us understand Mongolia ten or 20 years from now.
The University of British Columbia has been interested in Mongolia for eight years through the Program on Inner Asia. This book is the outcome of a conference that surveyed the field of research on Mongolia and commemorated the 35th anniversary of Mongolian-Canadian diplomatic relations.
Passionate about Mongolia, Dr. Dierkes hopes that the research represented in the volume will inspire younger researchers interested in Mongolia.
