The Research Seminar in Tibetan and Himalayan Studies will arrange four meetings during the autumn semester 2011. At each regular seminar one of the participants will present new research literature (e.g. monographs or their own research) related to Tibetan and Himalayan Studies as an introduction for discussion. Particular attention will be paid to theoretical and methodological questions.
The regular research seminar is open to researchers and PhD-fellows. Master students in Tibetan Studies are invited as auditors.
A guest lecturer will be invited once pr semester. For PhD-fellows, participation in ten research seminars (two semesters) and the writing up of an eight to ten page paper will give 10 credits in the PhD program. There is a reading list of c. 1000 pages pr. semester.
