The project supports collaborative exchanges among scholars based in the US, Canada, Britain, and Southeast Asia with the aim to undertake a thematic study of Theravāda civilizations in South and Southeast Asia. Begun in 2011, the project facilitates conferences (Toronto, 2012, Arizona 2013, and Chiang Mai in 2014); workshops for doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers; and the publication of edited research collections. The work of project scholars draws on approaches from the humanities and social sciences, including history, anthropology, ethnography and textual studies of Pali and vernacular literatures.
