11th Jaina Studies Workshop At SOAS - Jaina Scriptures And Philosophy

March 12-13, 2009

Jaina Scriptures And Philosophy

Research on the Jaina Agamas, once the main domain of Jainology and Prakrit Studies, has become rare nowadays, while studies of Jaina philosophy and religion based on sources in Sanskrit, Middle and New-Indo-Aryan languages are increasing. The conference seeks to reconnect research on canonical and non-canonical sources and their uses. Contributions are invited on Jaina scriptures and philosophy.


March 12-13, 2009

Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre
School of Oriental and African Studies, Russell Square, London WC1H OXG

The conference is co-organised by the Centre of Jaina Studies at SOAS and the Centre for Theology and Religious Studies of the University of Lund.
