Iran?s Mongol Experience

David O. Morgan

Professor of History and Religious Studies

Chazen Museum of Art, Room L140 (Elvehjem Building)

Iran was invaded by the Mongol armies of Genghis Khan in[masked], and again by his grandson in the 1250s. The Mongol kingdom that was set up at that time lasted until the 1330s. The lecture will explore the nature of the Mongol impact on Iran. Was it wholly destructive, as traditionally believed, or are there positive elements that historians, without minimising the death and destruction that the Mongols brought with them, ought also to consider?


David Morgan is professor of History and Religious Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is the author of Medieval Persia[masked], "History of the Near East" (Longman, 1988) and The Mongols, "Peoples of Europe" (Oxford, Basil Blackwell 1986).
