Early Modern India: Literatures and Images, Texts and Languages – NEW on CrossAsia-eBooks

Interested in Indian vernaculars, Persian, Sanskrit? In the relations between various yogic traditions? Then read CrossAsia-eBook’s latest release: Early Modern India: Literatures and Images, Texts and Languages, edited by Maya Burger and Nadia Cattoni, Heidelberg, Berlin.

The book presents recent scholarly research on one of the most important literary and historical periods of the Early Modern era from a wide range of approaches and perspectives. It contains a selection of contributions presented at the 12th International Conference on Early Modern Literatures of North India which provide fresh and new material as well as innovative methods to approach it.
The organizing principle of the volume lies in its exploration of the links between a multiplicity of languages (Indian vernaculars, Persian, Sanskrit), of media (texts, paintings, images) and of traditions (Hindu, Jain, Sikh, Muslim). The role of the Persian language and the importance of the translations from Sanskrit into Persian are discussed in light of the translational turn.

Early Modern India can be read and downloaded as a whole or in individual chapters on the CrossAsia-eBooks website. Moreover, a hard cover edition can be purchased at local bookstores or via online booksellers. Weitere Informationen:

CrossAsia-eBooks is a service of Heidelberg University Library and the South Asia Institute in cooperation with the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin and funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and its Specialised Information Service Programme (FID).
