We are thrilled to announce the publication of two long-awaited volumes from Professor Ashley Thompson, Hiram W Woodward Chair of Southeast Asian Art in the Department of the History of Art and Archaeology. The first of these is a book in the Southeast Asian Art Academic Programme (SAAAP-NUS) series: Early Theravādin Cambodia: Perspectives from Art and Archaeology; and second, a volume emerging from her work as part of the Luce Foundation-funded Theravāda Civilisations group, The Routledge Handbook of Theravāda Buddhism.

Professor Thompson also presented new work when giving a recent talk on the extraordinary iconographies of Angkor’s Kulen mountains in the Courtauld Institute Arts of the Buddhist World series; and she will be delivering a talk on the sacred feminine at the Inaugural Conference of the Harvard University Collective on Gender, Religion and the Arts of Asia, in early June 2022.
