Workshop on ‘The Mahabharata’ by Dr. Adluri & Dr. Bagchee
- This event has passed.
August 15, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
This workshop examines the claim that the Mahabh?rata critical edition reconstructs a “normative redaction,” that is, a deliberate Brahmanic redaction of an earlier, heroic oral epic. It will show why this claim is false, and relate the claim, made by Georg von Simson, John Brockington and James L. Fitzgerald, among others, to a tradition of anti-Brahmanism in Indology.
