It is my pleasure to welcome you to the first issue of TSIN! Over the past decade I have felt the need for a mechanism to exchange academic information in the field of Tibetan Studies, and hope this tentative first step will facilitate such an interchange. The first issue includes news of research projects, new dissertations and a guest essay, but future issues may also add other areas of interest to readers such as reviews of books, films, and exhibits, and information about conferences, development projects, new publications and the like.
To a large extent, the content of future issues will depend on you the readers and I hope that you will take an active part in this enterprise by sending in items for inclusion either about your own work or about other projects in your universities or institutes. Similarly, since I would like to use TSIN to highlight important research issues in the field, I want to invite any of you who have a topic you want to discuss or present to your colleagues to contact me about writing a guest essay.
Regarding these, I should add that TSIN will also publish readers' comments and responses to such essays, and I encourage you all to send me your views. Finally, if there are any other topics you would like to see included in future TSIN issues, please do not hesitate to send me your ideas.
If TSIN is to succeed it will have to meet the felt need of those involved in Tibetan Studies and development, and to accomplish this, you, the readership, will have to advise me of your needs and interests. Apropos this, note that Volume I, issue 2, will be published on January 15, New research on the making of Xikang province Lawrence Epstein and Peng Wenbin University of Washington We have begun to undertake a major long-term research project on the history and development of Xikang Province.
