Call for Proposals

Digital Humanities and the Study of Hinduism

Ute Huesken,

The methods and techniques of Digital Humanities are increasingly reshaping the manner in which established areas of research are carried out. Use of digital applications and electronic equipments is ushering a new era for the study of Hinduism as well. These rapid advancements necessitate a careful and thorough assessment of the desirability, as also possible concerns, of employing them and call for a judicious integration of the new techniques in the workflow of the study of Hinduism, including, for example, the editing of manuscripts. The main aim of this session is to review and revise the study of Hinduism and of South Asian manuscripts in the context of the fast-evolving discipline of Digital Humanities.
