Long abstract:

This panel is a follow-up of the one held at EurASEAA 14 in Dublin (2012). Participants of the panel on Southeast Asian epigraphy will report on current field, museum, and archival research on inscriptions as well as their documentation. Although the main focus is set to be on new discoveries (such as the recent find of a multilingual slab from Kyaukse, Burma, among others), previously published material will be critically re-assessed as well. Discussion of epigraphs are going to be put into archaeological and art historical contexts (such as inscribed Buddha images, glazed tiles, and the like). Confirmed participants (as of November 2014) include Tilman Frasch (Manchester) who will report on the current state of epigraphy at Pagán, Marek Buchmann (Berlin) on inscriptions from Northern Thailand in Dhamma [Tham] script, and Christian Bauer (Berlin) on Mon inscriptions. The panel is open to further participants who are hereby invited to submit contributions.
