"Interaction in the Himalayas and Central Asia"
Processes of transfer, translation and transformation in art, archaeology, religion and polity from antiquity to the present day

Montag-Mittwoch, 25.-27. November 2013

Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna
(1010 Wien, Dr.-Ignaz-Seipel Platz 2, Sitzungssaal, 1st floor)

The aim of this colloquium is to focus on various forms of interaction and related processes of transfer, translation and transformation in the Himalayas and Central Asia, including Northern India, Afghanistan, Northern Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet, from the perspective of a variety of disciplines and fields of study (in particular archaeology, art history, numismatics, philology, social anthropology, study of religion).

Topics include the discussion of direct or indirect cross-border relationships and the examination of transfer and transformation of knowledge and specific cultural traditions as well as of interrelationships across geographic, cultural and media borders (for example, painting, sculpture, ritual, text) together with the examination of trans-religious dynamics in borderland regions.
