From Pastoral Nomadism to Global Urbanism: The Complex Journey of Kalmyks in America and Russia
Douglass Library will host the exhibition From Pastoral Nomadism to Global Urbanism: The Complex Journey of Kalmyks in America and Russia from January 20 through March 31, 2017. The exhibition opening will take place on January 20, 2017, from 6 to 8 p.m.
The Kalmyks originated in Dzhungaria (today's Northen Xinjiang, China) in the 16th century. They proceeded via Russia and Western Europe and some of them settled in Howell, New Jersey in the early 1950s, establishing a unique diasporic community. Through drawings, photographs, artifacts, and music recordings, the exhibition will showcase the Kalmyk journey from pastoral nomadism to post-WWII urban/suburban America.
