Charles Ramble (né à Calcutta le 6 février 1957) est un anthropologue et tibétologue spécialiste de la culture tibétaine. Il a participé à plusieurs programmes de recherche américain et allemand concernant certaines régions du Tibet. Charles Ramble a été maître de conférences en études tibétaines et himalayennes à l'Institut oriental de l'université d'Oxford. Il a obtenu son doctorat en anthropologie sociale à Oxford en 1985. Son travail de terrain dans le district de Mustang au Népal fut une base pour sa recherche post-doctorale au Tibet. Après quelques années passées à travailler dans les secteurs du tourisme et de la conservation, il est retourné au Mustang dans le cadre d'un projet pluridisciplinaire de six ans financé par le Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) par les universités de Bonn et de Berlin. Il a été associé de recherche à l'université de Vienne et enseignement intermittent à l'université de Paris[1]. Depuis 2009, il est directeur d'études à l'École pratique des hautes études de la Sorbonne à Paris, où il détient la chaire d'histoire et philologie tibétaines. De 2006 à 2013[2], il est le président de l'International Association for Tibetan Studies[3], dont il a organisé à Oxford le dixième séminaire en 2003.
