VON ROSPATT, A

In Nepal alone Indian Mahāyāna Buddhism survives in its original South Asian setting with Sanskrit as its sacred language. In addition to preserving and transmitting the Indian Mahāyāna literary heritage, Nepal has also produced its own Buddhist Sanskrit literature. The focus has been on narrative works, and among these the Svayambhūpurāna is the most important. It dates to the late 14th or early 15th century and can be viewed as a response to the loss of the Buddhist heartland in India proper since the 13th century.

The class introduces to the Svayambhūpurāna and its different versions, and will also consider the larger literary, religious and historical contexts in which this work was initially composed and then further developed. While we have a good unpublished edition of the oldest and shortest version (of which two Tibetan translations are extant), the editions of the middle length version and the principal long version are unsatisfactory and will require that we work with manuscripts. However, rather than getting absorbed by philological details, the plan is to cover good ground, and to read through some of the main narratives. Among them will be the myth of the spontaneous manifestation (svayam-bhū) of the luminous crystalline dhamadhātu that features in the title of this textual tradition, and, related to this, the mythological account of the construction of the Svayambhū stupa, the principal Buddhist shrine of Nepal, which—according to this account— was built over the dharmadhātu so as to to encase it. We will relate this mythological account to the historical records of medieval renovations of the Svayambhū stūpa, and consider, more generally, how the māhātmya-like Svayambhūpurāṇa reflects the Buddhist landscape and ritual practices current at the time of its composition in Nepal, and how it treats these themes—even while couching them in etiological terms—as shaping the present in which its audience lives.
Additional materials will include detailed paintings of the Svayambhūpurāṇa—mostly scrolls, but also the murals in the Śāntipur shrine up at the site of Svayambhū—which, depict the narrative, scene by scene, arranged in registers, and accompanied by captions.

Kings and Lords: The Courtly Culture of India

This course explores the contours of regal governance in premodern India that held sway from its crystallization under the Gupta Empire (early 4th c. CE) until the rise of the Delhi Sultanate (13th c.). Through an exploration of courtly literature, epigraphic testimony, political and aesthetic treatises, and discussions of art and architecture, we will examine the constitutive ideals of lordship and discuss the ways in which political agents sought to effect their will on the dynamic terrain of premodern India.

Human Rights, Censorship and the Arts in Southeast Asia

In recent years, the discourse and law of “human rights” has reshaped struggles for social justice and individual freedom.  Nearly all nations, including all Southeast Asian ones, have passed laws to comply with international “human rights” commitments.  At the same time, Southeast Asian nations continue to cite national security, respect for authority, public safety and public decency (often within some overarching assertion of “Asian” values) to justify regulating and limiting such rights.  Upon this complex legal and cultural battleground, Southeast Asian artists assert and test their “rights” to artistic expression and freedom from censorship.

This course explores the struggle for “expressive rights” within Southeast Asian performance and film practices.  We will address the mechanisms (legal and extra-legal) used to regulate and censor film and live performance, and consider whether “human rights” can be effective in challenging such mechanisms.  We will look at banned performance texts and videos of performances and films, and discuss strategies employed by artists and arts institutions to avoid censorship or to self-censor.  

Case studies will be drawn from throughout the region, including Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam, Myanmar, and Singapore.

This graduate seminar is designed to introduce students to the Mughal Empire (c. 1500-1750). As well as interrogating the larger question of early-modernity and the empire's place in a global context, we will also -- among others -- explore debates focused on state-formation, Islam, elite women, male comportment, Persian and other languages, relations with the Ottomans and the Safavids, the imperial city, and decline/decentralization.

Buddhism has inspired a wide spectrum of religious, textual, and political movements in modern Southeast Asia and Sri Lanka, ranging from millenarian movements and scriptural reform projects to the secular nationalism of Young Men’s Buddhist Associations. This interdisciplinary course explores the individuals, beliefs, influences, practices, and institutional developments that shaped, led and framed such movements in 19th and 20th century Southeast Asia and Sri Lanka with particular emphasis on the contested terrains of text, monument, and material culture. We will examine the tensions between purist prescriptions, colonial categorizations, European heritage conventions and popular practice as played out in Laos, Burma, Siam/Thailand and Cambodia. We will examine diverse articulations of sacred space; tensions between modernization projects to centralize and nationalize Buddhist learning and forest-based dhutanga practices involving cross-boundary mobility, and the transnational traction between M. K. Gandhi and Buddhist resistance movements in Southeast Asia. Our focus areas are Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

EDWARDS, P S

This course introduces the worlds of Cambodia, Vietnam, Burma, and Thailand through modern literature, including epic verse, short story, novel and contemporary poetry. Issues we will explore include transmission, circulation and censorship, but our principle concern is with voice.   The twentieth century dramatically expanded not only the media in which stories were told, but the repertoire of voices and forms through which literature was passed down. Through a close reading of the class texts, we will examine why some stories travel and gain traction in ways that ensure their longevity.  The course embraces the classical works Khun Chang Khun Phaen (Thailand, excerpts) and Tum Teav (Cambodia) as well as the modern novels Dumb Luck (Vietnam) and Not Out Of Hate (Burma).  Throughout the course, we will explore how cultures, stories and language echo and resonate across time even as regimes, genres and voices change.
