Kim Koo Library, Watson Institute
This event is for Brown University students
This event is intended as an informal gathering for students to meet Finnian Moore Gerety, Visting Professor of Religious Studies and learn more about South Asian Studies at Brown. Students considering or concentrating in South Asian Studies or Religious Studies are particularly encouraged to attend. Food will be served.
Professor Moore-Gerety works on texts, rituals, and the senses in South Asian religions, with a focus on Hindu traditions of India. He is especially interested in Sanskrit mantras: how they are performed, textualized, and passed on; how they are embodied and sensed; how they are reflected upon and interpreted; how they are transformed in the digital age; and how they influence identity, community, and heritage within religious traditions.
