About the Project

Project term: April, 2019–March, 2022

This research project aims to investigate various phenomena of cultural contacts and acculturations that occurred in the frontiers of South Asia, including Bengal, Assam, Nepal, Trans-Himalaya, Kashmir, East Afghanistan, Sind, and South India, from the ancient period to the modern period. The focus is on cultural encounters of transregional Sanskrit and Persianate cultures and local cultures in various frontiers. Through a comparative study on cases of frontier areas, this project attempts to verify the possibility of combining the separate regional identities in each frontier and their development into the sense of belonging to “the Indic World.”
