Guest lecture: State Formation in Sikkim – A New Approach to Sikkimese History
March 4, 2013 - 15:15-17:00
The Tibetan and Himalayan Studies guest lecture, by Dr. Saul Mullard, will take place in Seminar room 2, P. A. Munch’s House, Monday 4 March 15.15-17.00.
Dr. Mullard, who is currently a full-time (non-resident) researcher at Ecole Pratique des Hautes Études (Paris), received his D.Phil in Oriental Studies from the University of Oxford in 2009. From 2009-2011 he held an overseas fellowship from the Leverhulme Trust (UK), leading a project on the cataloguing and digitalisation of the Sikkimese Palace Archive. This resulted in the publication of “Royal Records: A catalogue of the Sikkimese Palace Archive” co-compiled with Hissey Wongchuk in 2010. Since then he has written one monograph, “Opening the Hidden Land” (2011: Brill), edited a four volume series on Tibetan foreign relations, “Critical Readings on the History of Tibetan Foreign Relations” (2012: Brill), and authored numerous articles on Sikkim and Tibetan-Sikkimese relations.
The guest lecture is organized by the interfacultary Research Seminar in Tibetan and Himalayan Studies series funded by Religion in Pluralist Societies (PluRel).
