Trinity Term 2024

I am delighted to share with you the exciting lineup of lectures and conferences scheduled at the OCHS for Trinity Term. This term promises to be enriching with four conferences and the presence of seven distinguished visiting fellows from India, Japan, the USA, Brazil, Canada, and Slovenia.

We are honoured to welcome Dr S. Bhuvaneshwari as the Shivdasani Visiting Fellow and Prof. Glen A. Hayes as the J. P. and Beena Khaitan Visiting Fellow. Additionally, I am pleased to announce the inauguration of the Behl Visiting Fellowship, which will be graced by Dr Abhishek Bose. We also extend our warmest welcome to Prof. Kiyokazu Okita, Prof. Mandakranta Bose, Dr Nina Petek, and Dr Ricardo Silvestre. 

Each of our visiting fellows will deliver a lecture during the term, and you can find detailed information in the lecture list below. These lectures will be held in the OCHS Library and are open to the public, offering a wonderful opportunity for intellectual engagement and exchange.

Our conferences this term will explore a diverse array of topics, providing a platform for scholarly discourse and exploration. 

  • The God and Consciousness in Indian Traditions, a three-day conference funded by the John Templeton Foundation. 
  • Boundaries, Liminality, and Heterodoxy in Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇavism, a conference which is part of our Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇavism research programme.
  • The Sanskrit Traditions Symposium is celebrating its 40th anniversary and will take place at Trinity College, Oxford.
  • Text and Ritual in Śākta Traditions, an online conference that is part of the Śākta Traditions research programme. 

The best part? Our conferences are free to attend and open to the public. We will share detailed information about the programme and how to sign up for each event in separate emails.

I look forward to another enriching term and the vibrant academic community here at OCHS.

Yours sincerely,
OCHS Development Officer
