Lecture 8. Central Asia 1

This lecture suggests how Nomadic Eurasia must be viewed as Spatial interregnum or Cultural Matrix, versus as a conventional region. Besides its unbroken geographies, alongside continuous ‘land’ connections and movement ‘corridors’ connected a ‘matrix’ of influence, it was also a conspicuous and transforming, trans-spatial social network of changing nodes, versus fixed and physically defined centers. It was this confederation of tribal solidarities versus landed empire/s and their collective, social choreographies that served as the foundation for the so-called mode of Pax-Nomadica.
