CCCI: Gerald Roche
Tibet, China, and Settler Colonialism
CCCI welcomed Gerald Roche, Senior Research Fellow, LaTrobe University to speak on "Tibet, China, and Settler Colonialism." The term settler colonialism is increasingly being used to describe the relationship between the People’s Republic of China and its so-called ethnic minorities, such as Tibetans and Uyghurs. Roche provides a brief overview of settler colonialism as both a framework for scholarly analysis and real-world practice of domination. He also discusses urbanization in Tibet as a technique of settler colonialism, particularly the relationship between urbanization and migration. This talk was recorded on April 12, 2021.
