Through the series of workshops devoted to Bon and Naxi manuscripts organized in the years 2016–2020 we aimed to create and to reinforce a network of scholars who are known for their work on both traditions. The topics included the different collections of Bon and Naxi manuscripts, the concepts and history of both traditions, the science and technology of book studies and its possible application to Bon and Naxi manuscripts, the relationship between text and illustrations, writing materials used in both traditions, and the historical and archaeological context of the manuscripts’ places of origin. At the last workshop, we were able to formulate the key topics that had emerged from our extended investigation of the Bon and Naxi manuscripts. Thus, for this workshop we ask our participants to present their research developed within the framework of one of a dozen possible topics.
