This symposium was first planned for April in 2020, but has been repeatedly postponed due to the pandemic. We are now very excited to host it on April 8th through 10th at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. This symposium focuses on exploring and celebrating the recent emergence of Tibetan female writers in their Himalayan homelands and in the broader global diaspora. Prominent Tibetan authors from across the globe will come to Charlottesville to share their creative essays, short stories, memoirs, and poems in person.
