FURUI Ryosuke

Ryosuke Furui, professor at the University of Tokyo, is a historian working on the early medieval Bengal, especially the socio-economic aspects, and an epigraphist deciphering and editing inscriptions from Bangladesh and the Indian state of West Bengal. The result of his research are now published as

2019 Land and Society in Early South Asia: Eastern India 400–1250 AD (Routledge).

As a member of DHARMA project, Ryosuke Furui will edit and re-edit early Bengal inscriptions and contribute to the online epigraphic database to be constructed through the project. He also hopes to bring out a corpus of these inscriptions. He looks forward to interacting with the members of DHARMA and getting inspiration from these interactions.
