Art of the Mongols, Specialist Art Short Course, SOAS, University of London

Art of the Mongols – 10-13 February 2014 (4 days)

Specialist Art Course

Description

Art of the Mongols

Course Fee: £540

The destructive impact of the Mongol invasions is well known. Less well known is the important contribution these steppe peoples made as patrons of the arts in when they established themselves in China and Iran in the 13th and 14th centuries.

This course will devote two days to the arts of the Yuan, the Chinese dynastic name chosen by Kubilai Khan and two days to the arts of the Ilkhanids in Iran led by his brother Hulagu. In this period the Pax Mongolica was initiated and technologies, craftsmen and ideas flowed between China and Iran. It was a time of brilliant cultural flowering as the Mongol rulers sought to govern their disparate empires and sponsored a remarkable new visual language.

The course features

Lectures by leading experts and curators

Visits to museums, including unique access to reserve collections

«MONGOLIE : UNE CULTURE EN MOUVEMENT»

Sur la base de ses entretiens avec le Pr S. DULAM, ethnographe, chercheur, poète (francophone), aux éditions Presses Universitaires François Rabelais, Tours.Mongolie

Publication de Mme Isabelle BIANQUIS, anthropologue, professeure à l’Université François Rabelais de Tours.

« Fin 1989-début 1990, l’impensable se produit : l’effondrement de l’Union soviétique signe l’arrêt de mort de la République Populaire de Mongolie. La nouvelle constitution adoptée en 1992 instaure une démocratie parlementaire et une économie de marché en lieu et place de l’idéologie marxiste-léniniste. Ce mouvement voit naître une revitalisation sans précédent d’un sentiment nationaliste étroitement corrélé à une quête des racines. La recherche des traditions occupe alors une place centrale dans la définition d’une identité mongole ; Gengis Khan devient la figure de référence.

Un immense enthousiasme conduit les intellectuels à jouer un rôle majeur dans ce mouvement de l’histoire : Sendenjav DULAM est de ceux là. Fils d’éleveurs, ethnographe, spécialiste de mythologie, de chamanisme et de symboles, poète, ce grand chercheur occupe des fonctions politiques et des responsabilités au sein du Comité d’organisation des grandes célébrations « traditionnelles » nationales. Son exceptionnel témoignage rend compte d’une culture en mouvement tiraillée entre des modèles contradictoires et fait entrer le lecteur dans la vie quotidienne des nomades et des Mongols contemporains. S. DULAM retrace ici le sens d’une vie consacrée à la recherche et au service de l’État. Il démontre le mécanisme de sa contribution à la mise en forme des symboles nécessaires à la construction de la nation, mais il livre aussi ses doutes et ses positions face aux profondes mutations contemporaines.

Contemporary trends in the Mongolian folksong tradition of urtyn duu

Contemporary trends in the Mongolian folksong tradition of urtyn duu

In 2009, three young singers, who had met at the conservatory and had studied a traditional folksong genre called urtyn duu (long-song), created a folk pop-group. Like the pictures provided in the liner notes, which were unusually commercialized for a traditional folk genre music, their music was unexpected and provocative for the majority of the Mongolian folk music audience. This new direction was unusual not so much because of the melding of Western instruments such as piano and synthesizer with a traditional vocal genre, but rather because of their unique acoustic ‘harmonizing’ of independent, ornamented and melismatic vocal solos, while retaining the traditional singing style and improvisation, and using mostly traditional songs.

The city and ideology: Examining the state ideology in urban space in post-socialist Mongolia

August 28th at 5:30 pm at University of Education – Room 201

 » The city and ideology: Examining the state ideology in urban space in post-socialist Mongolia » (ACMS Speaker Series presentation)

Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia, has seen profound changes in the post-socialist years. The city space has been used as canvas upon which the shifting state ideologies are continuously inscribed. The state’s ideological shift is easily “readable” throughout the cityscape of Ulaanbaatar including the central square which has been recently adorned with a new name- Chinggis Khaan’s Square. Chinggis Khaan has been used as the most prominent marker of Mongolia’s new identity and has been appropriated rampantly to articulate the new post-socialist identity. The Chinggis monument is one of numerous such state-endorsed reconfigurations of the national symbolic landscape. This presentation examines the visual articulation of the state through an analysis of the city’s symbolic architecture and iconography. Using primary sources such as government decrees, the presentation examines the state’s role in producing and inscribing the new national identity in the urban material landscape.

Dr. Myadar’s research interests lie within the intersection of politics and geography. She has written in the areas of post-colonial studies, nationalism and political identity. Dr. Myadar teaches political and cultural geography at the University of Arizona, Tucson. This event is partially sponsored by the Mongolian University of Education.
