On October 11th, Dr. Ruth Gamble of La Trobe University joined YHI to deliver a seminar on the Yarlung Tsangpo River. Her work focuses on the river’s interactions with local peoples (including cultural representation, hydropower, etc) in the past, present, and future. The talk was preceded by the 2017 fall reception.
