Claude AnShin Thomas

If you missed the presentation by Vietnam Veteran and Bhuddist Priest Claude AnShin Thomas on Friday, September 1, you can listen to it in its entirety by clicking here. The session was approximately an hour and a half long, so this file is large (11MB). Thomas moved around the room a good bit, so the sound quality varies.

Thanks to a grant from the Fussler Fund, the Department of Global Studies has digital recording technology that enables us to record presentations like this. If you know of upcoming events or presentations with an international or global theme, please let us know and we will try to record it.

If you listen to the file, please let us know what you think by leaving a comment.
