Course Description This course introduces students to major themes and issues in traditional and contemporary Tibetan culture. Key topics include conceptions of sacred landscape, the human body as a microcosm of the universe, and the social order, including contested ideas of regional identity and of ‘Tibet" itself. We examine these themes via Buddhist and non-Buddhist literature, poetry, epic, auto/biographies, traditional histories, medical texts, pilgrimage guides, travelers' accounts, ritual materials, and artistic works, as well as though ethnographies and related studies. There will be several NYC field trips and 4 required films. No language or other prerequisites.
