Objectives
1) to identify patterns of social and cultural exchange in Amuria from the 16th through 19th centuries; 2) to illustrate how Amuria was a distinct arena of social and cultural exchange during the time period in question; 3) to elucidate long-term influences of studied exchanges on social and cultural characteristics of individual and multiple populations; 4) to produce a review-ready draft of a book-length study that will enrich regional history perspectives on Amuria [Given the customary length of the publication process in North America and Europe, which will be the primary markets for the book, the book will not be published by the time that the GRF project is completed, but may be reviewed by prospective publishers]; 5) to develop a wiki which will complement the monograph and serve as both a pedagogical and research tool that can be revised and enhanced continuously [Since the wiki is a perpetual work in progress, the PI does not guarantee any particular quantity or quality of content at this time. The wiki will evolve as the research proceeds, and the criteria for evaluating its outcome will be more suitably determined closer to the project completion date]
