Tibet and Central Asia: Nomads and Myths - ASNS1200

Year - 2019

The Tibetan cultural sphere extends from the Himalayas to the tribal planes of Mongolia. This unit explores the civilisations of that region by examining shared cultural histories from the 8th century onwards, including religions, languages, and customs. You will also learn how Tibetan myths shape today's perceptions of the 'orient'.
