 RENAISSANCE SERIES | Amplifying Everything Banned in Tibet
Episode 05

RAGING STORM: Words of the New Generation
Friday, January 28
6-8pm

This episode of SFT's Renaissance Series will highlight the works of Tashi Rabten (pen name: Theurang), Dhondup Gyal, Gade Tsering, Buddha, Dhonko, Kelsang Jinpa, and Kunga Tsangyang. Tashi Rabten, an editor of Shar Dungri (Eastern Snow Mountain) who was due to graduate last year from the Northwest Nationalities University in Lanzhou, also wrote an unauthorized collection of work on the 2008 Tibetan protests called “Written in Blood.” This episode will also highlight three Tibetan writers – Dhonko, Buddha and Kelsang Jinpa -- who were detained last summer after essays they wrote about the 2008 protests in Tibet and issues of Tibetan culture and identity were published. 

PROGRAM
Tsering Wangmo Dhompa, poet and writer (published works include "Rules of the House" and "In the Absent Everyday")
Techung, acclaimed Tibetan musician to perform a song by Tashi Dhondup, current political prisoner
Topden Tsering, writer and former editor of Tibetan Bulletin
Tsering Lodoe, Tibetan musician and performer
Tendor, Kate, Lhadon, Tendolkar and many more...

TIME: 6PM - 8PM, Friday, January 28
VENUE: Eshleman Library, 7th floor, Eshleman Hall, UC Berkeley
