China and Tibet: Historical Engagement, Modern Conflict
a lecture by Elliot Sperling
Thursday, November 21, 2013
Organised by Students for a Free Tibet, Asian Studies, Historical Studies and Asian Students' Organisation
The Tibet Question has been discussed from many different angles: as an issue of religious freedom, human rights, cultural preservation, and so on. At the core, however, is a contested history that has provided fuel for quite divergent interpretations of Tibet’s relationship with China and indeed for the basic understanding of Tibet’s past. This talk will take up this contested history and discuss the ways different parties have brought the past into play as justification for actions and policies in the present.
