Third Mongolian Studies Open Conference

The Third Mongolian Studies Open Conference (MOSOC) in Australia is planned to be held at the Australian National University on 3 November 2015. 


The MOSOC is a multi-disciplinary conference which provides a forum for the presentation of new research on Mongolia and the Mongols, especially for scholars based in Australia. The conference provides an opportunity for scholars with interests in Mongolia to meet, to hear each other’s work and to exchange ideas and information. It emphasizes interaction between younger and established scholars and between Mongolists and those with a comparative interest in Mongolian Studies. The focus of this year’s conference is on social and political changes. 


The conference is open to all. There is no registration fee. The Mongolia Institute has a very limited amount of funding available to assist participants with travel or accommodation costs.
