The OCHS research programme supports well-defined research in all areas in the study of Hindu culture. It encourages collaborative and individual scholarship that advances the understanding of cultures associated with Hinduism. It further aims to encourage fruitful interaction with the public from grass-roots to policy-makers to media, enhancing the culture of knowledge on the broadest scale.
OCHS research falls under three key streams: History of Hinduism; Hinduism and modernity; and Philosophy and Religion.
The OCHS welcomes proposals for research projects in these and others areas of Hindu Studies. Guidelines for proposals can be found here.
