This new blog will be keeping people up-to-date on all the latest news and activities at the new Clay Sanskrit Library project.
The Clay Sanskrit Library is a series of Sanskrit-English parallel texts covering a wide range of genres and selects some of the finest exempla of the Classical Indian literary corpus.
Based at the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, this project will be working to distribute and promote the collection across the globe. We will be organising an academic conference later this year to be hosted by Wolfson College, Oxford at which translators for the collection will be presenting papers on a variety of interesting themes and topics that arose through their work. We will also be organising many different activities with schools, public libraries and practitioner communities to promote the relevance of the literature to modern audiences.
We will also be donating 50 complete sets of the Clay Sanskrit Library to universities and public libraries with a vested interest in South Asia and Indian literature, culture and religion.
As well as this blog, you can keep track of all our activities over the coming months on Facebook or at our page on the Bodleian Libraries website.
