About the Project

Project term: April, 2011 - March, 2014

AIM OF PROJECT: Past research on the Tay Cultural Area has emphasized the influence of the surrounding pre-modern and modern states of Myanmar (Burma), Thailand and Vietnam. With respect to China, research has mainly concentrated on the relationship of the TCA with Yunnan and Guangxi provinces. Researchers have tended to examine ethnic groups, culture and language within the framework of continental Southeast Asia. The TCA connects with the Chinese, Tibetan and Mongol worlds to the north, and with the maritime world of the Bay of Bengal in the south.
This project aims to analyse the history, culture and languages of the TCA from the macro-perspective of a north-south axis. The principle purpose is to clarify how the history, culture and languages of the TCA changed with contact and interaction between ethnic groups and political regimes located both north and south. It sets out to examine how changes in the Tibetan, Mongol and Chinese worlds influenced the Tay Cultural Area. By taking the TCA as a case study, the project aims to contribute to the elucidation of the formation process of cultural areas in East and Southeast Asia.
