Sangseraima Ujeed is U-M Assistant Professor of Tibetan Buddhism Studies in the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures. Her research focuses on the transnational, transregional, and cross-cultural aspects of Tibetan Buddhism. Some of her leading research questions include: How do people form transcultural identities, and how do those identities change across time and space? What is the role of language in the translation, transmission, and preservation of a tradition? She has traveled extensively throughout the Himalayas, Inner Asia, and China and has a deep love for the folk sounds that resonate through these regions and is a long time friend of AnDa Union.
