Event Description
This workshop aims to provide some insight into the Mongolian culture by providing a look at the traditional lifestyle, a crash course in the Mongolian language, an overview of the effects the sudden world interest is having on this lifestyle, an analysis of the impact mining will have on the environment and the opportunity to see some of the Spencer Museum’s artwork from the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), the period when the Mongols ruled China.

This workshop is FREE but numbers are limited and registration is required. To register, please send an email to me at rhacker@ku.edu with the word “Mongolia” in the subject line.
