ACMS Speaker Series
Stocky: How Mongols Have Been
Described in the American Pop Culture
Speaker: Narantsogt Baatarkhuu

5:30 PM, Tuesday - January 12th, 2016, American Corner, Ulaanbaatar public library

             Since the 1990's, Hollywood films and Western literature have been seeing a great consumption in, among other countries, Mongolia. And it has been quite an experience for this speaker to find the words Mongol or Genghis or Kublai or Ulaan Bator referenced in works of international art with certain connotations. 
This presentation lists and analyzes Mongolia-related references in films, books and songs in the U.S.--and to a certain extent--Western pop culture. Some references include: Citizen Kane and Conan the Barbarian in films; Robert Heinlein, Herman Melville, and Stephen King in books; and Eminem and Kanye West in music.

Co-Sponsored by the American Cultural and Information Center, Ulaanbaatar
