Are you interested in learning more about the literature, philosophy and critical traditions of India? Would you like to meet with other like-minded folks and participate in events on campus that will lead to the development of a digital humanities platform for the linguistic, literary and cultural traditions of India?
If so, come for our Fall Welcome at Kennedy Grove behind Tresidder (in front of the Faculty Club), on Friday, Oct 8 at 5 pm! (There will be chai, samosas, aloo tikki and more from Zareen's.)
Please RSVP here as soon as you can. Open to scholars and students of all levels.
In the past, the Workshop on Literature and Theory in India has brought some of the best scholars of Indian literature and theory to Stanford, with session topics ranging from the ancient Sanskrit epics, early modern South India, the historiography of Kashmir, to the contemporary Indian novel. The workshop has also hosted undergraduate and graduate research forums to give students an opportunity to present their work, alongside ongoing reading groups in Sanskrit, and The Koshur Fellowship, an initiative to rehabilitate the Kashmiri language.
If you would like to be involved in any way, please come, because this fall welcome will be a great way for us to decide which events to plan for the year. Email Radhika at email@example.com with any questions.
