Doctoral scholarship for Malini Ambach

We cordially congratulate Malini Ambach, doctoral candidate at the Department of Cultural and Religious History of South Asia for being granted a doctoral scholarship by the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes (German Academic Scholarship Foundation). Since the winter term 2019/20 Ambach researches on her doctoral thesis entitled Śiva‘s two eyes: The sacred topography of the South Indian temple town Kāñcīpuram and its connections to the North Indian pilgrimage centre Vārāṇasī under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ute Hüsken.

The project seeks to answer questions about the inter- and transsectarian negotiation of the sacred space in the South Indian temple town Kāñcīpuram as described in the town’s glorifying Sanskrit texts (Māhātmya, Sthalapurāṇa). It also asks for historical parallels to the interrelations found in these mythological narratives, and for manifestations of transregional religious networks in local texts with regard to Kāñcīpuram in relation to the North Indian pilgrimage centre Vārāṇasī.
