Mongolian Climate and History: An Experiment in Collaboration

Mongolian Climate and History: An Experiment in Collaboration

September 29, 2022
4:00 PM ET

Location: 

513 Fayerweather on the Morningside Campus

Event Type: 

Please join us and register for the first History and Climate Change Workshop of Fall 2022, on Thursday, September 29th, at 4PM, featuring Amy HesslNicola Di Cosmo, and Caroline Leland, for a discussion on Mongolian Climate and History: An Experiment in Collaboration.

This event is in-person only in 513 Fayerweather on the Morningside Campus.


Historians and paleoclimatologists approach the past from vastly different traditions and experiences but share a passion for past environments and peoples. In this presentation, three scholars will discuss how a cold call in 2011 initiated a dialogue between a historian (Nicola Di Cosmo) and a group of paleoclimatologists (Amy Hessl, Caroline Leland, Neil Pederson, Oyunsanaa Byambasuren, Baatarbileg Nachin, and Kevin Anchukaitis) that would change our understanding of steppe empires and the role of climate in their evolution. The collaboration led to the development of new ideas that would not have emerged without a mutual understanding of their respective fields. They each learned new tools and approaches, and how to interpret new data sources, while at the same time recognizing their limitations. This joint understanding allowed the collaborators to identify novel connections between climate, ecology, political innovations, and trade.


The series is hosted by the Environmental Sciences and Humanities Research Cluster and is co-sponsored by the Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy and the Center for Science and Society at Columbia University.
