A new research project at the Mongolia & Inner Asia Studies Unit funded by Arcadia.
Creating a shared resource for the endangered culture of the Kalmyks.
Almost four centuries ago ancestors of the Kalmyk people trekked across central Asia to form a Buddhist nation on the edge of Europe. Today Kalmyk communities are scattered across Eurasia, with the largest group in the Republic of Kalmykia. A new project supported by Arcadia will document Kalmyk heritage to produce an open-access online resource to help Kalmyk communities revive their endangered culture.
The principle investigator of the project is Dr Uradyn Bulag and you can read more about the project by going to the dedicated Kalmyk Heritage website
