Kannada as a Classical Language

Due to the current situation caused by the corona pandemic we have converted our summer school “Kannada as a Classical Language” into an online course. It will be conducted by Prof. B.A. Viveka Rai together with the Chair of Indology, University of Würzburg, from 19th to 23rd October 2020, 3:00-6:30 p.m. CET.

This course focusses on the classical literary genre Champu. After an introduction into classical Kannada, Janna’s Yashodhara Charite (chapters 3 and 4) will be read and studied. Participants are expected to possess knowledge of fundamental grammar and the Kannada script before attending the course.

Prof. Dr. B.A. Viveka Rai is a retired professor of Kannada Literature and Folklore at the University of Mangalore.
