Book Launch: Narrative Visions and Visual Narratives in Indian Buddhism

Book cover of Dr Naomi Appleton's edited volume Narrative Visions and Visual Narratives in Indian Buddhism

An online book launch is being held to celebrate the publication of Dr Naomi Appleton's new edited volume, 'Narrative Visions and Visual Narratives in Indian Buddhism'.

This volume explores the interaction between text and image in Indian Buddhist contexts, including not only the complex relationship between verbal stories and visual representations at Indian sites, but also the ways in which visual imagery is used within textual narratives. The chapters are authored by textual scholars and art historians, bringing together different disciplinary perspectives to seek a richer understanding of how text and art relate, and of the role of narrative imagery in different media and contexts.

Join the editor, contributors to the volume, and guest reviewers Professor Andy Rotman and Professor Catherine Becker for a discussion, hosted by Dr Halle O’Neal of Edinburgh Buddhist Studies.
