We warmly invite you to the 37th Annual Sanskrit Traditions in the Modern World Symposium, which will hosted online by the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies.
Sanskrit Traditions in the Modern World (STIMW) is a forum for the discussion of the Sanskrit traditions of South Asia, and the texts and cultures that have arisen out of them. It brings together established and rising academics for the focused examination of research pertaining to various aspects of South Asia’s rich Sanskrit religious and intellectual culture. It thereby seeks to sustain and build upon the long history of scholarship in this important area of study.
This year’s symposium will feature the following papers:
Uncoiling a concept: Kuṇḍalinī in the early Haṭha corpus
Dharmaśāstra in the Ayodhya Verdict (2019)
C. T. Fleming
Hanumān’s Leaps of Faith: Intertextuality in the Dharma-maṅgala
Transcreating Sanskrit Humour through Kutiyattam Performance
Elena Mucciarelli & Adheesh Sathaye
All are welcome. There is no registration fee. But if you would like to attend, please register here.
Please note that STIMW papers are pre-circulated so that participants can read them before the seminar to ensure the best possible use of discussion time.
