Eveline Washul is Assistant Professor of Tibetan Studies in the Department of Central Eurasian Studies at Indiana University and Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology. Prior to joining IU, she was the Director of the Modern Tibetan Studies Program at Columbia University. Her current book project combines ethnography with Tibetan historical sources from the 12th to 20th centuries to study the particularities of Tibetan relationships to places and how these shape the transition from rural to urban livelihoods in the late-socialist reform period in the People’s Republic of China.
