The Sanskrit Traditions Symposium (formerly STIMW) is a forum for the discussion of the Sanskrit traditions of South Asia, and the texts and cultures that have risen 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:
The Concept of Sukha in the Ascetic Traditions of Ancient India
Valters Negribs (Sorbonne)
The Significance of Etymology in Early Modern Polemical Works Of Vedānta
Vinoth Murali (Cambridge)
