ANTH 32 Anthropology of Tibet and the Himalayas with Prof. Kenneth M. Bauer.
This course introduces students to the peoples and cultures of Tibet and the greater Himalayan region (Nepal, northern India, Bhutan). The cultural, ecological, political, religious, and economic interfaces that define life on the northern and southern slopes of Earth's greatest mountain range are examined. In addition to learning about Himalayan and Tibetan lifeways, students will also be learning about how these mountainous parts of Asia have figured into occidental imaginings, from the earliest adventurers to contemporary travelers.
During spring term ’18 students traveled to New York City to experience "Himalaya in New York".
