|Materiality and Material Culture in Tibet|
Project leader: Christian Jahoda
Financing: Innovationsfonds „Forschung, Wissenschaft und Gesellschaft“, ÖAW
The geographic and cultural-linguistic focus of the project is past and present-day Tibet. The three main topics are 1) materiality and material culture in early imperial Tibet, 2) materiality and material culture in Buddhist architecture and art and 3) concepts and practices related to materiality and material culture. Social anthropological, art historical, architectural and Tibetological research is combined with materials-related assessments.
