Charlotte Galloway’s specialist research interest is in the early Buddhist art of Myanmar.
She is one of the international UNESCO Experts who prepared the Bagan World Heritage Nomination dossier, which was submitted in January 2018.
She is a Senior Lecturer in Asian Art and Curatorial Studies in the ANU School of Art & Design, a regular teacher at the University of Yangon and an experienced traveller in Myanmar.
In recent years she completed the first full inventory of the Sri Ksetra Archaeological Museum, and has overseen the documentation for the Bagan Archaeological Museum.
In this lecture she will share some of her experiences: the excitement of primary research, new discoveries and some of the trials and tribulations that go with researching in the field.
The contribution of the art historian in interpreting these historic sites may provide necessary insights.
