Eric Huntington joined the Princeton Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts in 2014. His research focuses on the relationships between visual art, ritual, and philosophy in the Buddhist traditions of Tibet, Nepal, and India. His current book project examines depictions of the cosmos in Himalayan Buddhism, revealing ways in which cosmology has been an underappreciated foundation for many aspects of religious life. The work is framed to transcend disciplinary boundaries between religious studies, area studies, and art history. Huntington also publishes on other topics involving religion, art, and material culture, including Buddhist architecture and illustrated ritual manuals.
