Freeing Tibet

I'm a bit slow in mentioning this, but the issue doesn't end when March 10th ends:

March10

Interestingly enough, a couple a few months ago when I was putting together the syllabus for a course I am teaching, that date (March 10) corresponded to the readings on nationalism and how nation-states create and maintain a national identity and how violence and torture can be "justified" for preserving the state. So on that date I schedule a video - the film 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama - to illustrate an example of how this happens in practice. I had no idea that this march was scheduled for the same date, but I did mention it in the following class a couple days later.

An important moment for Tibet right now. My prayers are with them.

Always good to hear from you, Gregor.

Tinythinker - that is intriguing. Sounds like an interesting class - how did it go?
