Introduction : towards a connected history of the Qazaq steppe


Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsForeword / Postscript


The present volume brings together a selection of studies that were first read at an international symposium held in Venice in October 2009. In convening this event, we sought to map out some new lines of inquiry into the social history of the Qazaq steppe from the early modern to the early Soviet period.We term “Qazaq steppe” the region of central Eurasia inhabited by Qazaq communities, at the centre of which we find the steppes of present-day Kazakhstan as well as areas now belonging to Xinjiang, Siberia, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
