Mapping Amdo:
Dynamics of Change


The first vol­ume, sub­ti­tled Dynam­ics of Change,” fol­lows the first ARN work­shop held at the Hum­boldt Uni­ver­si­ty of Berlin in Decem­ber 2014. Based on recent ethno­graph­ic field­work and oth­er new data sources, the con­trib­u­tors of this unique vol­ume touch on a wide range of both con­tem­po­rary and his­tor­i­cal top­ics, rang­ing from socio-eco­nom­ic trans­for­ma­tions and dynam­ics of eth­nic­i­ty and relat­ed­ness to reli­gious and eco­log­i­cal dimensions.
