Repetition is an important aspect of her work and her interest in</p><p>constructive processes creates a visual language that is unified by a sense of order</p><p>and stability. While at times highly referential in nature, Bishop views her work as</p><p>an intimate exploration of space and time as well as a reflection upon our rapidly</p><p>changing landscape.</p><p>Come to Bishop's Artists' Talk on Saturday January 15th, 2011 at 1:00 PM</p><p>EXHIBITION: Leah Appel: Southern ApertureJan 7th 2011 - Jan 28th 2011</p><p>Appel is a commercial and art photographer working in Washington DC.

Venue is not handicapped accessible. </p><p>About the program:</p><p>March 20, 2011 marks an important milestone for the Tibetan exile community as they will elect</p><p>the head of government, the Kalon Tripa (Prime Minister) and members of the Parliament. As</p><p>the Dalai Lama moves to retire from his role in the Dharamsala-based Central Tibetan</p><p>Administration (CTA), popularly known as the Tibetan Government in Exile, attention has</p><p>focused on the authority and affairs of these elected leaders. The CTA provides many services</p><p>of a government to people who reside in different countries, including in the United States. It has</p><p>an executive branch, a legislature and a judiciary and functions under the guidelines of the</p><p>"Charter of the Tibetans in Exile" that was passed by the Parliament in 1991. Given the nature</p><p>of its existence and the fact that that its "constituents" are spread across several continents, the</p><p>election process of the CTA has its unique challenges.</p><p>In this session we will get a Tibetan and a Chinese perspective of Tibetan democracy in exile.</p><p>Prof. Xia Ming and Mr. Nima R.T. Binara will discuss aspects of Tibetan democracy and the</p><p>upcoming elections through their personal connections.

Binara is co-editor of the popular website The Tibetan Political Review that has been</p></li><li><p>8/8/2019 bMichael Events This Week 7 January 2011</p><p> 12/56</p><p>monitoring the ongoing Tibetan election process and providing analysis of the process as well</p><p>as the campaign statements by the candidates.</p><p>About the speakers:</p><p>Professor Xia Ming is Professor of Political Science, at the College of Staten Island and the</p><p>Graduate Center, the City University of New York. He is a columnist for BBC World Service</p><p>Chinese Section and China in Perspective electronic magazine. He is also an associate editorfor Modern China Studies journal.
