Art and Science meet in Nepal in July, 2011. UAB professors Dr. Cathleen Cummings (Art History) and Dr. Cynthia Ryan (English), with VCU professor Dr. Dina Bangdel (Art History) and their students study the art history and religion of both Buddhism and Hinduism concentrated in the artistically rich environment of Kathmandu Valley. Students will also study the intersections between the unique cultural landscape of Nepal and Nepalese understandings of the physical and spiritual body.
After returning to the U.S., I'm realizing how much I miss Nepal. I want to thank every member of our group (including our fabulous guides!) for such an unforgettable experience! Here are some of my pictures! There will be more to come soon!
