About the event

In the heart of Central Asia,  the ancient “land of the Afghans” has been part of the Persian; Greek; Muslim, Mongol and Mughal empires  before unifying and asserting their political independence in the 18th and again in the 19th and 20th centuries.  The course will offer multifaceted exploration of the largely rural tribal society that has proven itself to be the “graveyard of empires.”
