Nepal: Tibetan and Himalayan Peoples

Through the thematic lectures and fieldwork of this program, you will explore issues of cultural transformation and preservation, identity and social change, religious revival, and [sub-]regional geopolitics. You will be challenged to consider the contemporary and historic connections between diverse Himalayan “landlinked” communities. Questions of self-identification and recognition, as well as of diaspora, exile, and migration, are important topics for analysis in this program. Please visit our website for more information. This year, SIT will award over $1.5 million in scholarships and grants.
