Conference | Inner Eurasia Then and Now: Legacies of Thought, Space, and Empire
Inner Eurasia has been, and continues to be, at the crossroads of civilizations and power contestations. Much of these lands were once dominated by the Mongol, Russian, and Soviet empires, and at the frontier of Chinese and Ottoman influence. This cultural and institutional inheritance continues to impact the region. Bearing this in mind, the conference asks: how does the framework of legacies allow us to identify patterns across the region, and what effects have the region’s unique position and history had on processes, from revolution to reform? The conference considers Eurasia past and present, spanning from the Black Sea to Mongolia, from Siberia to South Asia. Stressing multi-disciplinarity, submissions have been welcomed from a variety of departments, programs, and centers.

Film | Spanish Documentary: Pilar Pérez Solano's Las maestras de la República (2014)
Education was one of the greatest social tenets of Spain’s Second Republic, with the objective of bringing culture and education to every corner of the country in order to achieve a more equitable and harmonious society. A group of women, standing for modernity and independence, took these principles to heart, bringing down the walls between male and female students. Director Pilar Pérez Solano supplements archival footage with a staged recreation of the life of one teacher from this historical period, uncovering their lasting legacy. Winner of this year’s Best Documentary Goya Award, Las maestras de la República explores the experiences and ideals of all those pioneers whose project was so savagely destroyed by the Civil War that started in 1936. 65 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. Wine reception to follow.
