Dear friends,

I cordially invite you for our lecture series "Religious Traditions of India", organized in the frame of the UGent Humanities Academie. The lectures can be followed online and/or on campus. After each on campus lecture (Aud. 2 Blandijn), we offer you a small reception at our department (Blandijn, 5th floor).

The online lectures are free. The program is posted below.

For registration (to get the URL): https://humanitiesacademie.ugent.be/religious-traditions-of-india. However, the registration module is entirely in Dutch only, and if you are finding it difficult to navigate, but would like to attend one or several lectures, just send me an email (ev.declercq at ugent.be) and I will send you the URL.
