Due to travel restrictions that prevent Field School courses in Mongolia, the American Center for Mongolian Studies has been offering Online Field School courses to all interested persons for the year 2021. The courses are taught in English, and through the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation are free for all participants. The course topics will be similar to the ones planned for the 2020 Mongolia Field School. Enrollments for Session 2 courses are ongoing, and Session 1 course recordings are available on the e-learning platform. ACMS is planning to resume on-site instruction in Mongolia in 2022.
Due to the pandemic-related travel restrictions, we are offering a series of online courses throughout 2021 that highlight many of the key topics and instructors who planned to teach in our 2020 Field School.
We're going to resume our regular Field School offerings on-site in Mongolia in 2022, and anyone accepted to the 2020 Field School can defer their acceptance and fellowship awards to 2022.
The five courses offered across three sessions this year are:
- Digitizing Mongolian | Mar 10 – Apr 28
- Mining and Environment in Northern Mongolia | Apr 5 – May 31
- Mongolian Buddhism: Sacred Geography in Munkh Khukh Tengriin Oron | June 7 – 21
