The Colleges of Arts & Sciences of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa continues its Downtown Speakers Program with a special lecture on March 11, 2004 by Dr. P. Bion Griffin, Associate Dean and Professor of Anthropology. This free talk will be held from 12:00 to 1:00 PM at the American Savings Bank Tower (formerly the Pacific Tower, Bishop Square corner of S. King & Alakea), 1001 Bishop Street, 8th Floor, Room 805. It is a brown-bag event so attendees are invited to bring their lunches.

The University of Hawaiʻi is the only American university substantially assisting in the reconstruction of Cambodia, following three decades of war and destruction. Dr. Griffin‘s lecture titled "Angkor Wat - the World‘s Largest Temple and UH Adventures in the Kingdom of Cambodia" will cover the exciting work of our scholars and take us on a tour of the fabulous temple ruins and monuments that culminated in the world‘s largest religious structure, Angkor Wat. We will also see the capital of the empire‘s greatest king, Jayavarman II, in Angkor Thom.
