Book Information

   

Title: Text, Image and Song in Transdisciplinary Dialogue
Subtitle: Proceedings of the Tenth Seminar of the IATS, 2003, Volume 7
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=26343
Series Title: Brill's Tibetan Studies Library 10
Description:

The papers in this volume all result from field work in the Indian
Himalayas and the TAR conducted by the Interdisciplinary Research Unit,
Austrian Science Fund. While the research goals were established within the
framework of transdisciplinary research, each scholar approaches scientific
problems according to the methodologies associated with their respective
disciplines: philology, philosophy, history, art history, linguistics, and
anthropology.

In the contribution published here, Steinkellner, Klimburg-Salter, Widorn,
and Jahoda explicate the structure, methods, and advantages of
transdisciplinary research. Lasic and Tauscher analyse two different
philosophical questions on the basis of manuscripts from Tabo (Spiti) and
Gondhla (Lahaul). Pasang Wangdu, Tropper and Ponweiser each examine a
Buddhist monument from a different perspective: Keru (TAR), Wanla (Ladakh),
and Tabo. Papa-Kalantari and Hein discuss respectively an iconographic
problem and oral traditions from Spiti and upper Kinnaur.
