I’m super excited to announce that my article on Chinggis (Genghis) Khan was chosen to appear in the East Bay Historia Spring 2023 edition. The essay is titled “Where Did the Mongols Go? How Chinggis Khans’ Legacy Was Erased Via a Racialized and Colonizing Discourse.”
After writing about the Renaissance and Middle Ages, I became interested in the Mongol empire, but quickly discovered that there are a lot of false stereotypes about who the Mongols were, what they did, and how they did it.
If you want to read about why the Mongols are portrayed this way, check out my article here, in an an abridged version of the Historia. (Read here or download to your device by clicking the link below the image).
This journal of historians from California State University East Bay has many other fine articles, from the link between the Cold War and modern dance to Buffalo Soldiers in Yosemite. Feel free to check out the whole journal at this link:
