Nomadic art as cultural and political capital

This lecture will discuss the Golden Horde (1242-1502) and its relations with the Grand Duchy of Moscow, including the role of global trade and politics in contrast to the maintenance of an uninterrupted steppe nomadic tradition. The speaker will explore the visual and political parameters of this "balancing act", and the later impact of the Golden Horde on Central Asian and Russian imperial history.
