Expertise: Raymond's research has largely focused on the iconography of Theravada Buddhism. Her special interest is the arts of Burma/Myanmar as more broadly interactive with South and Southeast Asian civilization. Since her appointment as Director of the Center for Burma Studies at Northern Illinois University, she has resumed her research in the former Buddhist kingdom of Arakan (presently Union of Myanmar's Rakhine State). She also curates the extensive Burma collection at the NIU Art Museum, where she is presently developing new digital approaches to teaching Burmese art at all levels and towards lending a much wider familiarization with this unique resource, both on- and off-campus.
