tutor: Carmela Mastrangelo

After the BA degree in Oriental Languages (Sanskrit, Hindi, Persian) at Ca' Foscari University of Venice (Italy), I got a MA degree in Religious Studies at University of Padua (Italy). My phD project deals with the histoy of indological studies in Italy during the Risorgimento in their transnational and multidisciplinary perspective. I also focused my attention on bilingualism, translation and religious identity in Central and South Asia. Sinci my MA studies I developed an interest in the practice of funerary lament as depicted in Sanskrit literature.
