Dharamshala: A two-day seminar on Contemporary Literature in Tibet: Continuity and Change was held at the TCRC hall, Central Tibetan Administration. The Seminar is organised by the Tibet Policy Institute.
Kalon Norzin Dolma of the Department of Information and International Relations attended the inaugural session of the seminar as the Chief Guest.
In her address, she emphasised the significance of the seminar. She said, “Since the invasion of Tibet, Chinese government has implemented a series of policies aimed at undermining Tibetan identity and sinicisation of Tibetan culture.
“Literature reflects the social conditions of different societies; hence it is important to study what is written. At the same time, particularly in contemporary Tibetan literature, we should also observe what is not written or what is not allowed to be written.”
The Director of the Tibet Policy Institute, Dawa Tsering delivered the welcome address. The Deputy Director of the Tibet Policy Institute concluded the inaugural session by delivering a vote of thanks.
The two-day seminar will be held at the same venue from 8-9 August 2023. Eight scholars will present various topics on the theme. It is attended by over 45 observers and participants.
