Asia Beyond Boundaries
Beyond Boundaries will examine the cultural constitution and configuration of the centres of political power, map how Sanskrit, Prakrit and Pali – the languages of political and religious discourse – came to be used across Asia, and analyse how temples, monastic organisations and landed estates emerged as autonomous socio-economic institutions with stable endowments. For more information on Beyond Boundaries, please visit the project homepage.
