Rupak will receive a $1000 CARTSS Award for preliminary research, titled 'Citizenship-in-Exile: Exploring Tibetan Nationalism and Resistance in the Himalayas'. The project primarily explores how Tibetans-in-exile negotiate, navigate and perform citizenship, nationalism, and resistance in Nepal, against the backdrop of China's increasing politics of development. The grant is funded by The Center to Advance Research and Teaching in the Social Sciences at the University of Colorado.
