The editors wish to put together an interdisciplinary collection of essays that utilize reflexive scholarly inquiry to interrogate cultural responses to death by gathering essays that analyze various aspects of death while at the same time acknowledging that death affects us all. Any study on the topic cannot be decontextualized. We must all necessarily grapple with loss and mortality as we examine cultural responses to death.
Hindu Cultural Trails: Celebration of a Timeless Tradition – Gods and Goddesses, Pilgrims and Prayers, Temples and Texts
The SAARC Region is bound together through the shared cultural traits which have evolved through the centuries. Hinduism is the oldest surviving living religion in South Asia dating back to more than three millennium BCE.
The conference “On the Threshold of a New Era” draws on the broader attention given to the breakthrough year of 1918 to open up space for critical thinking about historical events and processes connected with the formation of Czechoslovakia in the social, cultural, political and economic context of post-war Europe, and especially in the Central European region. We have selected either topics which have been neglected, or, on the contrary, those which have been generating extraordinarily lively and conflicting discussions and thus raising new questions and research opportunities.
