Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview of this book, which attests to the continued growth of Tibetan literary studies as a field that both complements and challenges existing areas of humanistic scholarship. The book offers a glimpse of the rapidly expanding Tibetan literary world. It serves as valuable guides to anyone newly arriving at Tibetan literature as well as essential reading for Tibetan literature’s older friends. Specialised Tibetological studies of history, culture, or religion circulate in valuable ways, to be sure, but when literature circulates, it draws people in by building its own bridges and creating new spaces for dialogue, challenge, appreciation, and possibility. In this way, contemporary Tibetan literary studies help to illuminate the always intermingling phenomena of artistic expression, history, politics, and the imagination.
