Sophia Van Zyle Warshall

Sophia studies premodern Indonesian history. Her dissertation titled “Imprints and Impressions: an ecocritical study of Javanese stūpika, 9th – 11tt centuries” examines miniature Buddhist reliquaries (stūpikas) from c. 9-11th century Java as a means to add granularity to our understanding of the movement of people and ideas through the maritime trade routes of Southeast Asia.
