Lund Lecture Series on Indian Religions

The Lund Lecture Series on Indian Religions is a free digital lecture series containing up to 50 videos. The series is a resource for researchers and teachers with an interest in India and the study of religions.

About the Lecture Series

The lecture series is organised by the Centre for Theology and Religious Studies (CTR) and the Swedish South Asian Studies Network (SASNET) at Lund University in cooperation with the Nordic Centre in India (NCI).

It was funded by the Division of External Relations at Lund University as part of the University’s Asia Action Plan, which aims to support and encourage activities that stimulate long-term cooperation with Asia in research and education.

The lecture series includes lectures on religions with a historical origin in India as well as on the religions of significant minorities in the country. The lecture series addresses both historical and contemporary perspectives in the interdisciplinary study of religions.

The lectures are research-based and presented by researchers and teachers in theology, the humanities, and the social sciences at Nordic and Indian universities. 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 globalisation.

The lecture series can be found below and are listed in a chronological and thematic order.
