Eveline Washul is an Associate Research Scholar, Adjunct Professor, and the Director of the Modern Tibetan Studies program at the Weatherhead East Asian Institute. She was a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at the Weatherhead East Asian Institute and Lecturer in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Columbia University. She received her Ph.D. in Cultural Anthropology and Tibetan Studies from Indiana University in 2018. Her research methods combine ethnography with Tibetan historical sources from the 12th to 20th centuries. Her dissertation research studied how the particularities of Tibetan relationships to places shape their transition from rural to urban livelihoods in the late-socialist reform period in the People’s Republic of China. She is currently working on a book manuscript that examines the history of geographical regions in Tibet.
