Genghis Khan and the Mongols: Barbarians or Harbingers of Global History

Morris Rossabi of the City University of New York will offer new insights into the history of the Mongol empire. Most people perceived the thirteenth-century Mongols as plunderers, rapacious and murderers. Over the past two decades, specialists have challenged this depiction of the Mongols and of Genghis Khan and have focused on the Mongols’ contribution to trade, relations between East and West, and cultural, religious, technological and artistic diffusion. CAS Speaker Series. Wednesday, March 11, 4 p.m. in Eaton Humanities room 250.

    Steampunk-ed Kung Fu: Transnational Modernity in Hong Kong Director Stephen Fung's Tai Chi Films

    Kenneth Chan, University of Northern Colorado, will discuss Hong Kong director Stephen Fun's two-part 3D martial arts extravaganza, "Tai Chi Zero" and "Tai Chi Hero." These kung fu flicks would have been unremarkable as Hong Kong entries to the genre if not for the fact that the director has amalgamated, rather creatively, the martial arts film with a form of retro science fiction: steampunk films. Chan argues that these films force a rethinking of China's and Chinese cultures' relationship to the West. Friday, March 6, 5 p.m. Humanities 250.
