On Monday, February 8, at 2 p.m. Bryan Miller, a lecturer in the Department of the History of Art at the University of Michigan, will give an online lecture titled Beastly Badges: the art of adaptive political cultures in nomadic regimes. Miller will discuss strategies of political culture developed by the Xiongnu Empire of Inner Asia (ca. 200 BCE—100 CE), as manifested in the array of belt ornaments that served as badges of personal prestige and emblems of political participation in the steppe empire.
