Mahabharata and Classical Hinduism Seminar

Call for Proposals

The Seminar’s call for papers for its second year addresses new methodologies and interpretive strategies, including approaches emphasizing gender studies, critical race theory, linguistic analysis, ethics, and comparison with the field of Biblical criticism, as well as new tools and resources for the study of the Mahābhārata. We also encourage proposals in response to the AAR’s 2022 Presidential Theme: Religion and Catastrophe, including climate change. In an effort to encourage diversity in seminar participants, those who presented papers in our 2021 meeting are unlikely to have proposals accepted for the 2021 meeting. We seek to include the best proposals we receive.
