Non-Violence as a shifting signifier on the Tibetan Plateau

In eastern Tibet, Tibetan nomads are starting to wear a new amulet, called an "amulet for peace." While combining global and Buddhist symbols for peace, the amulet and its slogan, "Friends, let's create harmonious relations together," are being marshalled for a local campaign to end fighting over the grasslands, a sustained social problem in Tibet. This luncheon series presentation features Professors Padmatso and Holly Gayley. Thursday, Aug. 28, 12 p.m., Center for Asian Studies Conference Room, University and Broadway. Lunch will be provided.
