About Jargal Badagarov

Jargal Badagarov is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Research Group “Entangled Parliamentarisms: Constitutional Practices in Russia, Ukraine, China and Mongolia, 1905–2005,” sponsored by the European Research Council (ERC) at the University of Heidelberg. His background includes research and teaching on Mongolic languages at the Institute of Oriental Studies, Buryat State University (Ulaan-Ude, Buryatia, Russian Federation), as well as activities in the Buryad language revitalization and language technology development. In his PhD dissertation he focused on comparison of Dagur and Buryad – two Mongolic languages that share some peculiar linguistic features within Mongolic linguistic phylum. His current research interests encompass diachronic study of modern Mongolian political terminology and exploring how its emergence laid a firm foundation for modernization of Mongolic ethnic groups (nationalities) in Mongolia, Russian Federation, and People’s Republic of China. Jargal Badagarov is fluent in Buryad (his mother tongue), Mongolian, Russian (language of education), and English, and has limited command of Chinese, Japanese, Manchu, French, and German. To this a sound linguistic knowledge of Kalmyk, Dagur, and Inner Mongolian dialects should be added, as well as the ability to read in several modern and historical scripts used to record Mongolic languages in the past, including ’Phags-pa, Tibetan, Arabic, Russian chancery cursive, Vagindra, and different varieties of Traditional (Vertical) Mongolian from calligraphic to shorthand styles.
