Contemporary Visions in Tibetan Studies
Contemporary Visions in Tibetan Studies: Proceedings of the First International Seminar of Young Tibetologists. From the early 1980s onward, the field of Tibetan studies has been transformed by the opening of Tibet to foreign researchers. In this volume of essays, contributions from promising young scholars, both Tibetan and non-Tibetan from across the globe, are divided evenly between essays that engage with the various modernities of Tibet, China and the diaspora on the one hand, and more classically oriented studies of history, culture and religion on the other. Here Tibetan tradition is scrutinized from without and within, sometimes upheld and sometimes revised. Reflecting the growth of the field and its movement away from assertions of Tibetan exceptionalism and towards cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural projects, many of the essays are problem-oriented, and their enquiries take them outside of the confines of the Tibetan cultural area and towards engagement with the wider world. With bibliography and index.
