This collaborative reading workshop will be centered on a re-reading of the much-discussed 1913 edict of the 13th Dalai Lama, known as the Chu mo lang gi rtsa tsig. Participants will work together to review and contribute to a translation of the document, and discuss its attempts at political and social reform by a Tibetan sovereign. Translation will be from Tibetan to English but non-Tibetan readers and members of the public are encouraged to attend. Light refreshments will be served.
