Ni d'ici ni d'ailleurs. Portrait d’un jeune Tibétain du Yunnan

Abstract : This research note seeks to depict a young Tibetan from a rural county of Yunnan Province at the time he entered university, where he discovers a very different world from his native country. It describes several moments which the author has witnessed: in his native hamlet, in Kunming, visiting a Buddhist temple, before entering university and after spending several years there, as a Tibetan who conceals his origin or proudly displays it during a village festival, alone, with a student friend or a Laotian colleague, in the context of a survey among the inhabitants of a neighboring hamlet. It is an invitation to immerse oneself in the life of this young man, as he tries to find his way through trial and error, which reveal his ambivalence of human being.
