Oxford Early Modern South Asia Workshop: ‘Discipline, Sect, Lineage and Community: Scholar Intellectuals in India, c. 1500-1800’

Friday, May 31, 2013 - 9:00am to Saturday, June 1, 2013 - 5:00pm
St Antony's College and Radcliffe Humanities Building

India’s ‘early modern’ centuries saw an extraordinary revival in intellectual and religious cultures.  It created a complex landscape for scholars and men of religion, who worked within, as well as across the boundaries between intellectual disciplines, sectarian affiliations, family commitments and their own personal interests.  To explore these themes, the workshop brings together researchers in the Sanskrit, Persian and vernacular language traditions, and in intellectual as well as social history.
