Modes of Authority and Aesthetic Practices from South to Southeast Asia, Paris 23.-25.5.2018
The French program Autoritas, a project funded by PSL (Paris Sciences & Lettres University), is focused on the study of the relationship between modes of authority and aesthetic practices from South Asia to Southeast Asia.
The project is conducted jointly by four French research units: The CASE (Center for Southeast Asian Studies), the CEIAS (Center for South Asian Studies), the LAS (Social Anthropology Laboratory) and the GSRL (Societies, Religions & Secularities Group). By opening a dialogue among historians, art historians, epigraphists and archaeologists on the one hand, and anthropologists and ethnomusicologists on the other, the EHESS, the EFEO, the Collège de France and the EPHE pool their resources to bring together research results coming from a multidisciplinary approach aimed at examining the relationship between the aesthetic phenomenon and authority.
