ACMS Speaker Series
Portraits of Change: 25 years of Mongolian Transformation

5:30 PM, Tuesday - February 24th, 2015, American Corner, Ulaanbaatar public library

Portraits of Change is a project that explores the transformation in Mongolia resulting from the collapse of socialism there, the transition period that followed, and the market economy that emerged. At the heart of the project is a portrayal of the sociological, economic, and environmental changes that swept the country during this time of historic change. It provides snapshots of the past, present, and future of Mongolia. The author will discuss what he has learned for the creation of this book and what future changes he sees.
