Mongolian Cosmopolitical Heritage: Tracing Divergent Healing Practices Across the Mongolian-Chinese Border

AHRC: Research Grant (2020–2024)

Prof David Sneath (PI), Dr Elizabeth Turk, Dr Uranchimeg Ujeed

This project seeks to ethnographically explore the politics of linking health and cultural heritage. More specifically, it aims to understand how the politics of culture affect health-related practices by asking: In what ways do geopolitical forces and national constructions of culture shape practices that influence health and wellbeing?
