3 mars 2021 : conference de Timothy Brook, “Why Chinggis Khan can’t get an exit visa: China’s Great State legacy

Abstract: Last October, the Nantes History Museum announced that its unprecedented exhibition on the Mongol empire would be delayed until 2024 due to interference from the Chinese government, which forbade the museum from using either “Mongol empire” or “Gengis Khan” in the exhibition’s title.  According to Director Bertrand Guillet, the “ethical choice” was to mount the exhibition without Chinese cooperation. More than just another soft power blunder, PRC pressure reflects multiple aspects of the centuries-long relationship between Mongolia and China. The lecturer will invoke the key Mongol concept of the Great State to analyze the current state of affairs.

This event is a part of the lecture series “China, Inner Asia, and the World: Mongol and Qing Empires in Comparative Perspectives” sponsored by the Weatherhead East Asian Institute at Columbia University.
