PhD student Southeast Asian Studies
I'm working on an edition, English translation, and study of the fifteenth-century Old Sundanese narrative poem Bujangga Manik (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Jav. b.3. (R)). The text opens a window onto the Indo-Malaysian archipelago before the Islamisation of Sunda and the arrival of the Portuguese in the sixteenth century, and refers to commodities sourced from places as far apart as the Levant and New Guinea.
