            • Telescopic Nationalism: Visions of Mongolia in Time and Space


              from Tal Liron / Added

              59 Plays / / 0 Comments

              Presented on August 12, 2014 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Copyright 2014 by the American Center for Mongolian Studies (ACMS) and Tal Liron. Please contact the ACMS for more information. In this presentation, Tal Liron articulates a model for analyzing a "deep grammar" of Mongolian national narratives. Starting with Naadam and Sukhbaatar/Chinggis Square, the discussion moves through many places, events, projects, personas and symbols that are employed and deployed in the ongoing effort to define and situate the "Mongolian nation" within shifting geopolitical and cultural constraints. We meet Buddhas and dinosaurs, archers and presidents, calligraphers and murderers. The analysis is based on data collected through a year-long, ongoing ethnographic research project based in Ulaanbaatar. Tal Liron is a PhD candidate at the University of Chicago's department of anthropology. This presentation is part of his dissertation-in-progress (as of October 2014) about contemporary Mongolian cultural nationalism, ideologies of cultural heritage, and historiographic mechanisms. The project is in part funded by the Division of the Social Sciences of the University of Chicago and the American Center for Mongolian Studies (ACMS). +++ There are a few minutes missing at 50:00. In them, Liron moves to the topic of "Other Silences": "My discussion of Ungern-Sternberg was an example of telescopic nationalism silencing the past by blatantly skipping over it. If you don't mention Ungern-Sternberg, then he effectively doesn't exist in history. Conversely, the Shugden narrative is hiding in plain view. The struggle is exactly about who gets to silence whom in this historical moment that is unfolding before our very eyes. You can put it this way: this is telescopic nationalism at its most volatile and fragile. It's exactly the desire to create for Mongolia a single grand historical narrative, one with Buddhism at its core. I could go on and on, but I don't want to keep you here all night. So I'll just quickly point out a few other places that the telescope avoids. The analysis would follow similar principles as presented in this talk."

                      Lecture by: Peter Marsh, Department of Music, California State University, East Bay Since the early 20th century, Mongolians have engaged in nearly constant debate about the present place of the indigenous traditions and culture in contemporary Mongolia. Socialist concepts of modernity and development, implemented and overseen by a Soviet-backed ruling party, allowed little room for the traditional art in its conception of a shine Mongol or “new Mongolia.” But as single-party rule waned in late-1980s increasingly diverse proposals began to emerge positing the need to expand the role of the traditional in the conception of the modern in Mongolia. The subject of traditional music, in particular, has had a surprisingly important place in these nationwide “discussions,” which have often played out on the public stages and in the national media. This lecture explores several examples of the arguments musicians and cultural officials have made for the transformative role of traditional music in helping Mongolians understand and confront crucial problems they as a nation face in contemporary, post-socialist Mongolia. This examination will highlight the multiple senses of “tradition,” “culture” and “the past” that Mongolians employ as they negotiate life in contemporary society. Peter K. Marsh is an ethnomusicologist and music historian who specializes in the music and culture of Mongolia and Inner Asia. He has written extensively on issues related to musical tradition and modernity in Mongolia. His latest book, The Horse-head Fiddle and the Reimagination of Tradition in Mongolia, Current Issues in Ethnomusicology Series (New York: Routledge Press, 2009) examines the development of two-string folk fiddles and their "folklorization" in Mongolia in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. He has presented his research widely in the fields of ethnomusicology and Mongolian Studies, and has lectured about Mongolian music at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, American Museum of Natural History, National University of Mongolia, and as part of the Annual Cowboy Poetry Gathering. He served as the founding Resident Director of the American Center for Mongolian Studies, an academic-oriented non-government organization based in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, and is currently Assistant Professor of Musicology and Ethnomusicology at California State University, East Bay April 11, 2013
