Time for Asia: Public Lecture on Seven Days in Tibet
The VMU Centre for Asian Studies is starting the new season of “Time for Asia” events. On Friday 27 September, 3 p.m., Dr. Linas Didvalis will hold a public lecture titled “Seven Days in Tibet” at VMU Centre for Research and Studies (23 V. Putvinskio g., Room 102).
Dr. Linas Didvalis, who is an assistant professor at Vytautas Magnus University, spent a week this year participating in the Forum on Development of Tibet and visiting different places in and around Lhasa: villages, towns, schools, hospitals, temples. This allowed him to meet local people, officials from the central government and also scholars from a variety of countries. The open lecture is dedicated to sharing this experience and impressions gathered during this one week about the situation in Tibet, its past, present and future.
“Time for Asia” is an event series organised by the VMU Centre for Asian Studies which aims to present contemporary issues and topics in the fields of Asian politics, society and economics.
