Eurasian Encounters : Museums, Missions, Modernities (Hardcover)
About this item
The essays in this volume explore crucial intellectual and cultural exchanges between Asia and Europe in the first half of the twentieth century. Examining the increased mobility of people and information, scientific advances, global crises, and the unraveling of empires, Eurasian Encounters demonstrates that this time period saw an unprecedented increase in the transnational flow of politically and socially influential ideas. Together, the contributors show how the two ends of Eurasia interacted in artistic, academic, and religious spheres using new international and cosmopolitan approaches.
