The Department of History was pleased to host Dr. Morris Rossabi on campus this October. In addition to meeting with students and lecturing in history courses, he delivered a public lecture on the historic figure of Genghis Khan and how that story is being used by the state and people of Mongolia today to create a national identity. Rossabi is Distinguished Professor of History at Queen's College (City University of New York) and Senior Research Scholar at the Weatherhead East Asian Institute (Columbia University). Entitled "The History and Modern Reinvention of Genghis Khan," this was the 16th in the department's annual Susan B. Cone Family Distinguished Lecture Series.
