While tickets to the Sept. 27 talk by human rights advocate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi of Burma have sold out, it is still possible to follow her speech in real time, while engaging with other viewers, on Yale Livestream.
The Chubb Fellowship at Yale is sponsoring the Nobel laureate’s talk, which will take place 11:30 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. in Sprague Hall.
In addition to the Yale Livestream broadcast, there will be a simulcast in the Law School's Levinson Auditorium, 127 Wall St. The simulcast is open to members of the Yale community; no ticket is required.
Those who cannot watch the event in real time can find the broadcast after-the-fact archived on Yale Livestream.
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 for her work promoting international human rights and democratic government. She currently is a member of the Burmese parliament, where she also chairs the National League for Democracy in Burma.
Her long, non-violent advocacy for the democratic evolution of Burma has been hailed as a powerful inspiration to others around the world. Since being released from house arrest in November 2010, she has continued to participate directly in Burma’s political transition and re-engagement with the international community.
