Kursuse kirjeldus inglise keeles:

The workshop aims at creating an understanding of ways in which the perception by Tibetans of their history has been conditioned by narratives created at various periods of time. In a broader perspective, this may be taken as a case study of how historical narratives, once created and accepted, in turn condition actual historical processes.

The workshop does not require prior knowledge of Tibetan history and religion, and will therefore begin with an introduction to these topics. There will be three sessions of two hours each. 

The workshop will be conducted by Prof. Emeritus Per Kværne, University of Oslo (Norway). Requirements for course and reading list are available in the Study System.

Attendance at all three sessions is required:

1) Oct 1st at 16.15 (Ülikooli 16-215)
2) Oct 5th at 16.15 (Ülikooli 16-212)
3) Oct 8th at 16.15 (Ülikooli 16-215)
