“Burma’s Resurrection: An Expedition Deep into a Forbidden Land” @ Sheridan Junior High School
Mar 2 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — Adventurer and journalist Mark Jenkins, of Laramie, will share his experiences exploring Southeast Asia’s Burma (Myanmar) on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Sheridan Junior High School.

Jenkins, a field staff writer for National Geographic and a writer-in-residence at the University of Wyoming, will present “Burma’s Resurrection: An Expedition Deep into a Forbidden Land.” The program is part of UW’s Global Studies Excellence Initiative and continues the “World to Wyoming” outreach series.

On the border of Tibet, the Hkakabo Razi peak lies in the far north of Burma. Jenkins’ team traveled by train, bus, motorcycle, boat and foot, all while battling leeches, poisonous spiders and venomous snakes. Upon arriving at base camp, the team ascended the serrated and heavily glaciered west ridge of Hkakabo Razi.

Jenkins’ story about his expedition, “Point of No Return,” was in September’s National Geographic. The journey also was featured in globally recognized climber and filmmaker Renan Ozturk’s documentary, “Down to Nothing.”

In his public presentation, Jenkins will take audiences across Burma, culturally and geographically — exploring his team’s hardships, fears, failures and freedom — in addition to ascending the country’s highest peak at 19,300 feet.

Jenkins has won numerous writing awards, including the Overseas Press Club Ross Award for “The Healing Fields” in 2013 and a National Magazine Award with colleague Brint Stirton for “Who Murdered the Mountain Gorillas” in 2009. Both projects provided the basis for statewide presentations at Wyoming’s community colleges as part of the “World to Wyoming” outreach series.

The public talks are sponsored by UW’s Center for Global Studies, UW’s Global and Area Studies Program, the Wyoming Humanities Council, the UW Outreach School and Wyoming’s community colleges, with additional support from the Ruth R. Ellbogen Foundation, the Homer and Mildred Scott Foundation and InterConnections21.
