About THL > THL Status Reports > Cultures Resources > Cultures Status Report
Last Updated: August 13, 2008.
The Cultures project aims at documenting cultural regions in the Tibet and Himalayan area, in contrast to the ways the area has been carved up into administrative units and polities by various governments over time. We have a provisional typology which we plan to publish as a "knowledge map" in the fall of 2008. We are also working on integrating those cultural regions into the Place Dictionary, and then they will be used to index various photos, videos, essays, and other resources within THL. We expect to have a well developed initial publication by the summer of 2009.
If this status report appears out of date, please contact us at to request an update, and we will do promptly. Limited staff resources and many projects will sometimes mean activity outstrips documentation.
