6.30pm:
  • The fortunes and misfortunes of the Tibetan army’s reforms during the first half of the 20th century (1895-1951)
  • Dr Alice Travers (CNRS)
  • The Tibetan army's expansion and reform was part of a modernisation programme undertaken by the 13th Dalai-lama. Troop numbers, organisation and equipment were improved in the context of Tibet’s de facto independence and increasing military threat to the east. Based on biographies, archives and interviews, this talk analyses the military reforms (recruitment, hierarchy, training, uniform, arms, ammunitions) in tandem with the political national and international context.
