This course will deal with the voluminous corpus of Chinese-language sources for the study of Tibet, particularly (but not exclusively) Chinese historical materials. Students will be exposed to standard Chinese histories, unofficial historical writings, geographical works, literary compositions, collectanea, etc., all containing material of importance for Tibetan Studies. They will learn how to locate, handle, and navigate through these source materials. In addition, students will learn about the major modern works of Chinese Tibetology, including Chinese-language translations of Tibetan writings and journals.
