WAUSAU — What happens to Tibet when China flexes its political muscle? Rick Lohr will explore this question when the Marathon County Historical Society presents “Tibet: Culture and Conflict on the Roof of the World,” another topic in its History Speaks series, at 2 p.m. Sept. 22 at the Woodson History Center, 410 McIndoe St., Wausau.
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.
