Wednesday Lunch Hour - Cultural Connections: Inner Mongolia

Although a unique part of China, Inner Mongolia might be an unfamiliar place to many. With a time-honored history Inner Mongolia has gone through the rule of Genghis Khan, ashes of the Second World War, and the establishment as an ethnic minority in the autonomous regions of China. It is depicted in the media, however, as an outstanding natural tourist attraction with vast grasslands and roaming sheep, presenting a diverse culture and ethnic fusion. For someone, who was born in a small village on the grasslands, there are many other sides of Inner Mongolia. With its economy flourishing with the development of China, there is environmental sacrifice, assimilation with the loss of heritage, as well as uneven allocation of educational resources. Witness the "prosperity" and "falling" of Xueyan Duan's hometown in this presentation, in which she hopes to show a different view of Inner Mongolia, a microcosm of developing China.

Presented by Xueyan Duan, a doctoral student at the Warner School of Education.

A light lunch from Susan Plunkett's Fabulous Foods will be served. Food will be available at 11:45 am. The program will begin promptly at noon.
