Wednesday evening’s talk was a smashing success! Prof. Langdon’s talk drew in an official quarter-record attendance of 22. The actual attendance of the event was even higher (we do not count individuals who do not sign in).
Prof. Langdon’s conversational presentation style wowed the audience, all of whom were pleasantly surprised by his decision to distribute a bevy of printed materials outlining Mongol history in a global context. In accordance to the theme of the talk, The Import of the Mongols in World History, he discussed how knowledge of Central Asia is vital to cultivating a connected, global mentality to the unfolding of world history.
We will not be meeting Week 8 of this quarter, but we will be honored by a presentation delivered by Prof. Caroline Ford on Wednesday of Week 9.
