New Narratives of Exile Tibet
Borrow Borrow Borrow

With its analytic focus on the cultural production by Tibetans-in-exile, this volume examines contemporary Tibetan fiction, poetry, music, art, cinema, pamphlets, testimony, and memoir. The twelve case studies highlight the themes of Tibetans' self-representation, politicized national consciousness, religious and cultural heritages, and resistance to the forces of colonization. This book demonstrates how Tibetan cultural narratives adjust to intercultural influences and ongoing social and political struggles in exile.

Reviews-
  • Lama Jabb, Wolfson College at the University of Oxford

    Tibetans both inside and outside Tibet often utter the phrase 'the reunion of the exiles and the residents' (གཞིས་བྱེས་ལྷན་འཛོམ།), which encapsulates both a factual statement on the fall and fragmentation of Tibet since the 1950s and a national aspiration for the reunion of Tibetans in a regained homeland. Resistant Hybridities: New Narratives of Exile Tibet is a timely book that appreciates the long roots of contemporary Tibetan culture and literature embedded within this evocative expression from the Tibetan exilic dimension.

  • Donald S. Lopez Jr., University of Michigan

    When one thinks of Tibetan culture, one tends to think of Buddhism. However, the past half century has been a period of vibrant cultural work—both in Tibet and in exile—that, if not disconnected, is abstracted from Tibet's storied Buddhism, and in fascinating ways. This collection of compelling essays brings this work to the audience that it so richly deserves.
