Tibetan scholars, Ngawang Choephel and Bhuchung Tsering, will speak on Tibet and its relationship with the Chinese government at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6, in McCosh 46.
Choephel, a teacher of Tibetan music and a Fulbright Scholar at Middlebury College, was arrested while visiting Tibet in 1995. He was released from a Chinese prison in 2002 after serving more than six years of an 18-year sentence on charges of espionage while filming traditional arts in Tibet.
Tsering is director of the International Campaign for Tibet, an advocacy group dedicated to promoting human rights and democratic freedoms for the people of Tibet. He is also a columnist for the Tibetan Monthly and Tibetan Review.
