Carole McGranahan on Tibet

By way of kicking off our “occasional contributors” project, Carole McGranahan has agreed to write something about Tibet for us, which she will shortly post. Carole McGranahan is an assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Colorado. She received a Ph.D. in anthropology and history from the University of Michigan in 2001. Currently, she is revising her book manuscript Once and Future Truths: Tibet, the CIA, and Histories of a Forgotten War for Duke University Press.

I found a number of great articles she’s written about Tibet, which I’m sure she’d be willing to share with anyone who cannot access them.

On behalf of the elite Euro-American gatekeepers of Anthropology here at Savage Minds, I would like to thank Carole for agreeing to mix it up here on this subject.
