Tibetan Women Writing: Life in the Borderlands (Faculty Roundtable)

April 19, 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Webinar

Rising from a historically inferior status and overcoming many disadvantages along the way, we have witnessed the blooming of writing by Tibetan women in the past few decades. Their works echo an ongoing dialogue among Tibetan, Indian, Chinese, and Western cultures and provide a rich venue for understanding femininity and womanhood in a global, dynamic context. This webinar brings together three translator-scholars and a rising Tibetan woman writer, Nyima Tso, for a conversation on her writing and literary life. Panelists: Tashi Dekyid Monet (མོ་ངེ་བཀྲ་ཤིས་བདེ་སྐྱིད།), PhD candidate in the School of Education and Human Development at the University of Virginia. Jue Liang, Assistant Professor of Religion at Denison University. Andrew S. Taylor, Assistant Professor in the Theology and Religious Studies department at The College of St. Scholastica. Moderators: Jonathan Pettit, UHM Religion. Anna Stirr, UHM Asian Studies/Director, Center for South Asian Studies. Co-sponsored by the UHM Department of Asian Studies and the Center for South Asian Studies.
