Lecture 9. Central Asia 2

his lecture continues stories from the Nomadic Steppe, in particular describing the four space- time moments that served as the critical disruptions with this cultural region. All of these moments were catalyzed by the mass movements of populations across this 'unbroken' land(ed) terrain, stretching substantially east-west and north-south. That nomads—often viewed as peoples with no permanent artifacts and iconographic imageries—were able to 'carry' and 'transfer' cultural content (including the choreographies, makings and expressions of built form), often in intangible form, across vast distances, is central towards this understanding.
