Are you studying anthropology? Do you want to know what studies are being conducted on Tibet? Is anthropology right for you? Whatever it may be, don’t miss this opportunity to meet and engage with 3 Tibet anthropologists: Professor Carole McGranahan from University of Colorado, PhD student Dawa Lokyitsang, and PhD candidate Ben Joffe from the University of Colorado.
Carole McGranahan is professor of anthropology, history, and Tibetan Studies at the University of Colorado. She is the author of the book Arrested Histories: Tibet, the CIA, and Memories of a Forgotten War (Duke University Press, 2010), about the Chushi Gangdrug Army and the Dalai Lama. Currently, she is finishing a book about the Pangdatsang family and 20th century Tibetan history. She is also completing research on refugee citizenship and political asylum in the Tibetan diaspora: NYC, Toronto, Nepal, and India.
Dawa Lokyitsang is a Ph.D. student of cultural anthropology. Her research is on the construction of Tibetan refugee schools and how it shaped the emergence of a cohesive nationalist exile identity.
Ben Joffe is a cultural anthropology PhD candidate at the University of Colorado. His research is focused on the globalization of Tibetan Buddhism and on developments taking place in Tibetan culture and religion today.
