After offering the reader the general context of Tibetan
forced migration to India evoking Tibetan history, culture,
the book looks closely at different methodologies using
images. Classic ethnographic tools, such as film or
relatively new methods, like photovoice or self-picturing
are compared. The study sits at the crossroads of social
science disciplines, such as history, ethnography, and
geography and is based on original field research conducted
in India since 2008. Majnu Ka Tilla is the name of the
Tibetan colony in New Delhi and the preferential location of
an experimental study related to memory and the spatial
features of memory. The bridge is an ethnic frontier and a
memorial urban point of reference creating the spatial
memory. This publication is the result of years of
experimental methodology using fixed and moving images with
the Tibetan diaspora in India.
