Enlightenment in German missionary accounts of India, 1750-1810

Papers will be sent to participants in advance, so that discussion can 
proceed on the basis of a paper that has already been read. There will 
be a fee to cover expenses: £8.00 for participants in permanent 
salaried posts, £4.00 for others. Lunch is not included in the fee, but 
is available nearby at very reasonable prices. A list of guest houses
