Sanskrit Traditions in the Modern World

Friday 24th May 2019
Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies

The STIMW symposium for 2019 will take place in Oxford on Friday 24th May, at the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies. We invite proposals for papers from both established and rising academics on any aspects of South Asia’s rich Sanskrit religious and intellectual culture. 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 risen out of them. Proposals should be submitted by Friday 1st March 2019.

Papers and Format – Papers are presented by leading scholars in the field as well as by research students. Papers are pre-circulated so that participants can read them before the seminar to ensure the best possible use of discussion time. Papers are therefore not read out at the seminar itself but instead briefly introduced by the chair who will then raise questions to the paper-giver, before opening the discussion.

Papers should be no longer than 20 A4 pages, including notes and references. To facilitate discussion for those short of reading time, paper-givers should provide a one-page abstract of the key argument of the paper, along with their paper. Please include your email address for further feedback.
