A Roma la “Coffee Break Conference 2”

Il seguente è il programma di un interessante convegno che si svolgerà a Roma dall’8 al 10 settembre. A tutti gli interessati consiglio vivamente di parteciparvi, anzitutto perché i conferenzieri sono dei giovani ricercatori e/o dottorandi, poi perché si tratta di un incontro internazionale e per finire perché la varietà degli interventi (tutti in inglese), che coprono diversi settori dell’orienalistica, restituisce un panorama di studi ampio ma ben strutturato.

The Study of South Asia: between Antiquity and Modernity: Parallels and Comparisons.
