About the Project

Project term: April, 2009 - March, 2012

AIM OF PROJECT: The aim of this project is to explore new perspectives in the studies on Indonesian cultures, societies and languages, by developing methods of using Indonesian manuscripts as the source of study. It is also planned to train young researchers in these fields.

WORK PLANNED: Focus is put on Javanese manuscripts in this three years project. Thorough research on catalogues and existing inventories, the project members, in collaboration with researchers overseas, will contribute to constructing a database of Javanese manuscripts and corpora which will form the basis for further studies on Java. It is planned to expand the scope of the project to the manuscripts written in other Indonesian languages, after the three years activities of the project
