Grass Roots: Pathway to Eurasian Cultures

In Fall 2012, the Havighurst Center co-sponsored a semester long focus on Eurasian nomads.  A musuem exhibit, featuring ancient bronzes from the Arthur M. Sackler Foundation, a semester-long lecture series, and undergraduate coursework culminated in a symposium, The Steppes: Crucible of Asia, a multidisciplinary conversation on the history, archaeology, art, languages, and folklore of the Eurasian grassland belt that for millennia served as an important link between civilizations from Europe to China.
