Academic Profile

Dorothea Heuschert-Laage works on different forms of dependency in Mongolian societies and approaches this topic from a legal history perspective. She is especially interested in the interlinking of the law of the Qing state (1636–1911) with practices and normative knowledge at the local level. How did the integration of Mongols into the Qing state transform or reinforce dependency relations and how was this reflected in the terminology? Dorothea Heuschert-Laage investigates these questions using indigenous Mongolian legal texts as well as records of legal cases from Qing dynasty Mongolian archives.
