'Creativity' and 'Innovation' in Central Asian Arts will be taking place on March 12-13 at the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies, Harvard University.

This conference will convene scholars in the fields of music, anthropology and history to provide diverse perspectives on the question, What constitutes 'creativity' and 'innovation' in Central Asian arts when the very notion of the 'traditional' has been reconfigured through migration, the history of Sovietization, and ongoing post-Soviet currents? The conference will consist of paper presentations, a keynote address by Professor Ali Igmen, and performances by Bukharian Jewish musicians and a Turkmen bagsy.

The conference and concerts are free and open to the public but we ask that you register online. The full program with a link for registration are below:
