HISTORY? THE PAST IN THE PRESENT
ANNUAL HISTORY GRADUATE STUDENT ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE AND WORKSHOP
April 22, 2016
“The antiquarian tries to bring back the past for the sake of the past; the historian strives to show the present to itself by revealing its origin in the past. The goal of the antiquarian is the dead past; the goal of the historian is the living present.” (Frederick Jackson Turner, 1891)
Following up on the panel topic for the Buddhism Section of the American Academy of Religion, we seek participants for a proposed panel on "Missionizing Strategies of International Buddhist Organizations" for this year's annual meeting.

Diplomacy in the Age of Mongol Globalization
Venue: May 30th-31st , 2016, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
The Mongols are famous for their uncompromising diplomacy. “Submit or Perish” was apparently the main message they initially addressed to others. These calls for submission were claims made by conquerors and leaders of a universal empire. In most cases, they coincide with the period of the great Mongol expansion.
