Who is a True Mongol?

October 18, 2012 from 4:00pm

Vesna Wallace (Religious Studies, UCSB) Since the rise of democracy and freedom of religious expression in Mongolia(beginning in the late 1980s with Mongolia’s separation from Soviet dominion), debates over who is a true Mongol and what makes one a true Mongol have dominated both the public and private sphere. Mongolian national identity has become defined, to varying degrees, in relationship to one’s ethnic group and religious affiliation.
