Are Tibet and its culture inevitably doomed by modernity? Do they represent something that can liberate, or seduce, modern people in both East and West? From spiritual alienation and bad conscience to resource wars and geopolitical strategies - what actually motivates Chinese and Western attitudes towards Tibet? Can the slogan 'free Tibet' actually have a meaning in a land where traditionally, god-kings have ruled? This lecture will seek to explore some of the deeper aspects of the Tibetan people's difficult fate.
