The Project

PlateauCulture presents an archive of images, writings, and place information about areas on and surrounding the Tibetan Plateau.

Contributors are mainly students, members/managers of local media projects, and local and foreign teachers and scholars.

The images here are mainly from Plateau Photographers, a participatory photography project that supports young photographers, bu other local and outside photographers' work is here too.

We are also the online publisher for the Asian Highlands Perspectives journal. Most but not all of the writings are published journal articles.

Place Citations are discreet snippets about a place. Sometimes, these are analyses of sources, but often just quotes.
