Topic areas


This workshop will investigate relationships between modern Western philosophy and Classical Indian philosophy. Its governing questions are:

  • How differently can we tell the story of philosophy’s development by correcting past prejudices and properly integrating and engaging with Indian sources?
  • What roles has Indian philosophy played in the history of philosophy?
  •  How and why has the historiography of philosophy excluded Indian philosophy?

Call for Abstracts

The workshop will include two presentations for which we invite submissions, on any topic relevant to the above research questions. Submission deadline 19th February 2024. Submit abstracts (500–750 words) for anonymous review to [email protected]. Travel bursaries will be available for postgraduate researchers whose submissions are accepted.
