Yale University is home to exceptional collections from and about the Himalayan region. From art to archives, publications to personal correspondence, manuscripts to religious artefacts, Yale's rich Himalayan holdings are located across the University. Materials may be found in Sterling Memorial Library, the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, the Divinity School, the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, the University Art Gallery, the Center for British Art and the Peabody Museum of Natural History. Many of these institutions are represented in this exhibit.
By showcasing a fragment of these unique collections, this exhibit highlights the depth and breadth of Yale's historical involvement with the Himalayan region. The curators of the exhibit are Sarah Calhoun (Yale Library), Andrew Quintman (Religious Studies) and Mark Turin (South Asian Studies). The exhibit will be on view from February 4 through March 31 in the Memorabilia Room in Sterling Memorial Library.
