Eveline Yang "The Limits of Amdo in History and Ethnography: Approaches to Identifying the “White Chinese Stupa” (Tib. Rgya mchod rten dkar po)"

Mon, Mar 3, 12:30 pm
Distinguished Alumni Room, IMU

Eveline Yang, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Central Eurasian Studies and the Department of Anthropology, will be discussing her work on "The Limits of Amdo in History and Ethnography: Approaches to Identifying the “White Chinese Stupa” (Tib. Rgya mchod rten dkar po)" on March 3rd, from 12:30-1:30 at the Distinguished Alumni Room in the IMU.

"My pre-dissertation fieldwork in eastern Tibet traced some possible locations of the “White Chinese Stupa” (Tib. Rgya mchod rten dkar po) mentioned in a 15th century Tibetan text. This talk will focus on various questions raised from the historical record and my preliminary attempts to use ethnographic approaches to investigate historical knowledge."

This is a talk in the new Graduate Student Brown Bag Talks, designed to allow students to share their research, work, experiences and goals with their peers.
