Synthese oder Antithese?: Indologie als Kulturwissenschaft
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Languages, Department of Linguistics and Philology.
2012 (German)In: Was ist Kulturwissenschaft?: Zehn Antworten aus den 'Kleinen Fächern' / [ed] Stephan Conermann, Bielefeld: Transcript Verlag, 2012, 1, 295-308 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The text reflects the present situation of the academic subject of indology between "hardcore" philology and some form of interdisciplinary regional studies (South Asian Studies). It also relates indology's identity crisis to present trends in humanities and in cultural studies (Kulturwissenschaften) in general. The article argues in favour of some form of regional studies with a strong basis in language aquisition.
