The 40ᵗʰ Annual Sanskrit Traditions Symposium

Friday 31 May 2024

 

The 40ᵗʰ annual The Sanskrit Traditions Symposium will take place in Oxford, at Trinity College, on Friday 31 May 2024, hosted by the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies. We invite proposals for papers on any aspect of South Asia’s rich Sanskrit religious and intellectual culture.

Proposals of 300-500 words should be submitted by Friday 1 March 2024.

They should be sent to the organising committee: stimw@ochs.org.uk.

The deadline for the submission of the accepted papers will be Monday 22 April 2024.

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 (or under 8,000 words), 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.
