Lund Lectures on Indian Religions
During the year 2022, SASNET organizes a digital lecture series on Indian religions in collaboration with the Centre for Theology and Religious Studies (CTR) at Lund University and the Nordic Centre in India (NCI) in Delhi.
The digital lecture series is one of the projects funded by External Relations at Lund University as a part of the university’s strategic Asia Action Plan which aims to support and encourage activities that stimulate long-term cooperation with Asia in research and education.
The series will include lectures on religions with a historical origin in India (e.g. Hindu, Buddhist, Jain and Sikh traditions), as well as religions that constitute significant minorities in the country (e.g. Muslim and Christian traditions), and address both historical and contemporary perspectives in the interdisciplinary study of religions.
In addition to themes related to historical developments, textual traditions, institutions, and ritual practices, the lectures address various social and political aspects in the study of Indian religions and their migration and globalization.
The lectures will be research-based and include researchers and teachers in the humanities, theology and social sciences at Lund University and invited experts at various Nordic and Indian universities. The lecture series will provide a valuable resources material for researchers and teachers with interests in India and the study of religions, while presenting current research and expertise in India and the Nordic countries.
All lectures will be published in open access on the websites of SASNET and its partners in this project, starting from late spring 2022.
