I am pleased to announce the second event in this year's East Asia Speaker Series held at Worcester State University. The theme of the series is borderlands and ethnicity.  A senior expert on the intersection of commerce, empire, and ethnic identities in China's borderlands, Pat Giersch will examine how the Chinese government's pursuit of economic development has disempowered ethnic minorities in China's borderland regions.  The talk will trace the origins of inequality and disempowerment to the turn of the twentieth century to reveal how Chinese modernity and inequality are deeply intertwined.

Title:  Disempowered Development in the Modern Tibetan Borderlands
Speaker: C. Patterson Giersch, Wellesley College
Time: Tuesday, Feb 13  11:30-12:45
Location: Worcester State University, Blue Lounge
