Item description for Tibet, Self, and the Tibetan Diaspora: Voices of Difference (Brill's Tibetan Studies Library, 2) by P. Christiaan Klieger...

The ten papers presented in this eight volume of the Proceedings of the Ninth Seminar of the IATS, 2000, provide examples of the colourful and lively range of Tibetan self-expressions that exist within the modern homeland and in exile. The scholars here represent the fields of anthropology, sociology, literary studies, history, and political science. Four papers are based in studies in the modern Tibet Autonomous Region, five are grounded in the Tibetan diaspora, and one deals with both classical Tibetan history and current affairs. The mass representation of Tibetan self, delivered through various literary vehicles, by linguistic competence, body decoration, landscape, or individual deportment, constitutes the basic theme of this collection. The volume is useful for any student of Tibet and those interested in the process of identity formation and presentation.

More About P. Christiaan Klieger

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! P. Christiaan Klieger is senior curator of history at the Oakland Museum of California and research associate at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. A cultural anthropologist, he has done fieldwork in remote corners of Burma, Tibet, India, Nepal, and Hawaii, and is the author of many books on the people and history of these areas. Dr. Klieger became interested in the Fleischmann's when he was assigned to write a background history of a private island in Hawaii once owned by a Fleischmann heir. This island, Coconut Island, was the prototype for television's Gilligan's Island. Digging deeper and deeper into the family history, this snapshot emerged.
