"Worlding Contemporary Tibetan Writings of the Global Tibetan Diaspora and Exiles: Exploring Language, Resistance and Tibetanness"
Thinley's doctoral project aims to establish Contemporary Tibetan writing in the context of the transnational and world literary systems which bring to light questions that bear importance for postcolonial and world literary frameworks.
This project draws on systematically studying Contemporary Tibetan writings in English, elaborating on contemporary Tibetanness, its effects on exiled Tibetan communities since the 1980s, extending discussions surrounding the kind of literature that is ‘worlded’ through the image and imagination of Tibetans today.
