Classical Tamil Seminar

India, Pondicherry, 1st - 5th March 2021

From 1-5 March 2021 the team of the Tamil Cankam project at the EFEO centre in Pondicherry will conduct a miniature Classical Tamil Winter Seminar in order to read the Kalittokai, one of the Cankam anthologies that have been critically re-edited recently. The text represents the apex of the earlier type of sophisticated poetry, and matters are further complicated by the highly influential medieval commentary by Naccinārkkiṉiyar.

Outside participation will be welcome, but since the whole meeting will have to take place online, due to the continuing pandemic, the number of places will be restricted to twenty-five participants.

For participation and registration please contact Eva Wilden.
