Welcome to Carola Erika Lorea
We cordially welcome Carola Erika Lorea from the International Institute for Asian Studies, Leiden University, at the Department of Modern South Asian Languages and Literatures of the SAI. The Bengali area specialist holds a DAAD scholarship and will stay for a year at the institute.
Dr Lorea's research project "Folklore, religion and diaspora: the migration of oral traditions across and beyond the East Bengal border"  is focused on the migrating folk-literature repertoires of post-Partition refugees resettled in various areas of the subcontinent. She is particularly studying the role of Bengali oral literature in the Andaman islands as a marker of cultural identity and a site of imagining 'homeland'. Carola`Lorea has recently published her first research monograph on the Baul tradition titled *Folklore, Religion and the Songs of a Bengali Madman: A Journey Between Performance and the Politics of Cultural Representation* (Brill, 2016).
