Documentation & Study of Bhutan’s Oral Traditions

The rich and vibrant ancient cultures of Bhutan are fast disappearing as the globalisation reaches even remote valleys of Bhutan. Led by a core team of three scholars with extensive experience of the Himalaya (Professor David Germano of the University of Virginia, Dr Mark Turin of Yale University and Dr Karma Phuntsho of Cambridge University), this project aims to carry out an extensive audio-visual documentation of Bhutan’s oral and intangible cultures.
