Michael Witzel’s Conferences in India

26 jun 2009, archived in conferences

Dr. Michael Witzel, Wales Professor of Sanskrit at Harvard University (USA), will deliver a set of three conferences in India. A very proper event in the year of the commemoration of Charles Darwin (1809-1882), the famous scientist who was opposed by the Christian church for so long time.

Prof. Witzel is a well-known scientist whose thesis on the script of the Indus Valley Civilization raised a lively debate among radical Hindus. This is the calendar of his lectures:

  • 8 July 2009, The Madras Sanskrit College, Chennai (organized by Indus Research Centre, Roja Muthiah Research Library, Chennai) (Jubilee lectures)
  • 9 July 2009, Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, or Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Advanced Study, New Delhi
  • 10 July 2009, India International Centre, New Delhi
