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.
