In Mongolia, nature and society has been dramatically changed since 1990.The aim of the symposium is to bring together natural / social scientists researching in Mongolia to promote the field study for the nature-human relationships in modern Mongolia. The symposium will consist of eight presentations. Their themes cover a wide range of relations between nature and society in Mongolia: mineral resources development, herders' life and migration, and ecology of the larch forests.
This symposium will be the first step for rethinking field studies in
Mongolia, both conceptually and experimentally.
We invited Prof. Julian Dierkes and Mr. Mikiya Nisimura as a guest speaker in this symposium. The first speaker is Prof. Julian Dierkes, who has been coordinating the research in the Inland area of Asia mainly in the vicinity of Mongolia at University of British Columbia. The second speaker is Mr. Mikiya Nishimura, president of a nonprofit organization (NPO) North Asian Culture Exchange Center; SHAGAA, who has performed an exciting range of activities for the Mongolia including research of a Reindeer Nomad in Huvsgul. In this symposium, they will give a lecture about a mining in modern-Mongolia under the economic boom.
We look forward your kind participation.
