Amdo Research Network

Amdo research network

About us

The Amdo Research Net­work (ARN) was estab­lished to con­nect schol­ars who share com­mon research inter­ests in Amdo,” a region his­tor­i­cal­ly and con­tem­po­rary of mul­ti­cul­tur­al and mul­ti­eth­nic influence.

ARN Guiding Principles 

The ARN’s objec­tives and work are rep­re­sent­ed in pub­lic through the ARN web­site. It is the aim of the ARN board to keep this web­site main­tained and up-to-date.

ARN mem­bers have the right to present their research inter­ests, cur­rent work, and cur­rent con­tact details at the ARN web­site. The ARN may choose to remove any such infor­ma­tion that is not main­tained by a mem­ber and hence has become over­ly out-of-date.

ARN mem­bers have the right to be includ­ed in the ARN mail­ing this. Mem­bers may use this list to com­mu­ni­cate research inter­ests, cir­cu­late drafts or ask rel­e­vant ques­tions. Very fre­quent com­mu­ni­ca­tions or fair­ly spe­cialised dis­cus­sions should how­ev­er best take place through sep­a­rate chan­nels. Mem­bers who abuse the mail­ing list in ways con­trary to its intend­ed pur­pos­es, or who vio­late basic prin­ci­ples of neti­quette, may be removed from the list.

The ARN pos­sess­es as well a Face­book account. The web­site and mail­ing list and Face­book account are main­tained by per­sons des­ig­nat­ed by the board. 
Due to the diverse and inter­na­tion­al nature of research on Amdo, and the inten­tion to dis­sem­i­nate this research as wide­ly as pos­si­ble, the ARN’s work­ing lan­guage for both work­shops and pub­li­ca­tion series is English.

If work­shop pre­sen­ters are unable to hold a pre­sen­ta­tion in Eng­lish, ade­quate trans­la­tion must be pro­vid­ed. How­ev­er, non-Eng­lish pre­sen­ta­tions should remain more an excep­tion than a rule. Like­wise, pub­li­ca­tions in Map­ping Amdo may be based on pro­fes­sion­al trans­la­tions to Eng­lish, as long as they meet the required aca­d­e­m­ic standard.
