Faculty Lead: Jonathan Gold (Religion)
This multi-year collaborative humanities project integrates research and teaching around the famous Buddhist monument of Borobudur near Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
Starting with an international collaborative workshop at Borobudur, the project will support Princeton faculty, graduate students and undergraduates in solidifying networks and developing research projects both at Princeton and in Southeast Asia. The project will develop a new interdisciplinary undergraduate course on “Buddhist Texts and Monuments” and a conference bringing scholars from Indonesia and around the globe to Princeton. Supported by a Humanities Council David A. Gardner ’69 Magic Grant and the Humanities Council’s Stewart Fund for Religion
