"The Khanate of Khoqand, 1709–1876: A Journey into Central Asian History" with Scott Levi, chair of the Department of History
This talk will introduce key themes from my recent book on the Khanate of Khoqand, a surprisingly dynamic state that emerged over the course of the eighteenth century in eastern Uzbekistan’s Ferghana Valley. The talk will address the ways that political, economic, technological and environmental developments influenced life in early modern Central Asia and contributed to the rise, and fall, of Khoqand. It will also identify a number of ways that Central Asians influenced the policies of their much larger imperial neighbors on the Eurasian periphery – especially Tsarist Russia and Qing China.
