Recent Research in Nepal Studies
This reading group, hosted by Professor Christoph Emmrich, invited students and faculty working on Nepal, the Himalayas, and more broadly South Asia to read and discuss the most recent, innovative, and influential academic literature in the field of Nepal Studies. The readings, mostly monographs, which were decided upon following suggestions by reading group participants, ranged from textual to ethnographic and visual studies, covering literature, historical, anthropological, sociological, political, as well as art historical material, optionally including visual works such as documentaries.
Burma Studies Reading Group
Graduate students, faculty, and friends working on or interested in Burma come together once every three weeks during the fall and the winter term to read and discuss books and articles, usually from the fields of anthropology, archaeology, the arts, history, language, literature, media, political sciences, and sociology, occasionally joined by the authors and by immediate specialists. Participants propose and agree on the readings, both at the beginning of the academic year and from meeting to meeting.
