This presentation will discuss the Chinese effort to incorporate Tibet within the Chinese state through a process of sinification, the spread of Chinese culture, whereby every aspect of Tibetan culture has become a target of Han Chinese domination, according to the Woodson History Center.

Lohr is a former world history teacher at Wausau West and Newman Catholic high schools in Wausau. He holds a master’s degree in teaching from University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, with concentration in 20thcentury East Asian history.

There is no admission fee; however, donations are appreciated.  Registration is not required.
