EASTASN 306: Lamas and Emperors: Tibetan Buddhists in Late Imperial China (HISTORY 396T)

Instructor: Tracy Stilerman This course explores the rich interactions between Tibetan Buddhists and the rulers of the Qing Dynasty (1636-1912). Inspired by Mongol Yuan precedent, the Qing rulers employed Tibetan Buddhism in their efforts to rule over a vast, multi-ethnic state that included Manchus, Chinese, Mongols, and Tibetans. We will consider the complex network of individuals and groups involved in this interaction, from the Mongols, to Gelugpa lamas from Tibet, to the ethnically Manchu rulers of the Qing. We will explore courtly ritual implements, maps, architecture, and monuments, as well as textual sources to analyze the multi-ethnic nature of late imperial China. The course will draw on tools from history, art history, and religious studies. There are no prerequisites or linguistic requirements to take this course.
