Everest: New and Old Perspectives about Mt. Everest and the Sherpas Workshop

Event Type: 
Event Date: 
Saturday, November 16, 2013 - 08:30

[Non-CAS Event] This event has been canceled. Following the public lecture on Friday, the Saturday workshop will further explore Himalayan culture and geography.  Presenters include CU anthropologists and geographers who specialize in the region. Brot Coburn’s Saturday presentation will more specifically address the socio-economic and demographic changes within the Sherpa communities and provide a backdrop for a following panel discussion entitled “Big Egos, Thin Air.” Presenters will share their insights into the May 2013 conflict and respond to questions from audience members. After the panel, we will hold a curriculum session for educators to explore culturally informed and innovative ways to teach about the Himalayas in their classrooms.
