An Introductory Reading Seminar
Martin Chautari, Kathmandu
27 March – 18 May 2017
This reading seminar is an introduction to the history and historiography of the medieval Nepal (c. 12th-18th centuries). The seminar will enable its readers to familiarise themselves with a variety of source materials, strategies to read and engage with them, and develop a critique of the existing approaches in writing about the medieval life and times as well as their remains. The seminar has been designed as a workshop in part and a discussion in part. In each class, the reader will examine a medieval specimen critically and then discuss readings that have been constructed out of such specimens. This seminar is for you if you are interested in knowing about the long-term processes in Nepal’s past, and are not willing to take the received opinion.
