We have decided to cancel this Saturday’s Hutton Lectures event. This is considering the political situation in Nagaland following the massacre of at least 13 villagers in Mon district. The atmosphere remains understandably tense, and the optics are not good for us to continue with the conference at this time. There is a possibility that the symposium will not be rescheduled for a later date, but translated into a different format such as a published ‘colloquium’ in the Highlander Journal. We are currently consulting the presenters. We do trust you understand.
