South and East Asian Art and Music


Our faculty’s research in this cluster engages with a wide array of artistic and musical cultures in the geographical regions of East and South Asia. Research in this cluster ranges from examinations of Chinese temples and tombs, to cinema, architecture, photography, botany, urban studies, dance, and folk music in South Asia. Our research grapples with the visual and sonic traditions, both past and present, of some of the most culturally vibrant and politically complex areas of the world.
