We are pleased to announce that, as agreed by the International Association of Sanskrit Studies (IASS) at the last World Sanskrit Conference in Vancouver, the 18th World Sanskrit Conference will be held in Canberra, Australia’s capital city, from 18 to 22 January 2021.
The World Sanskrit Conference is the premier international forum for professional researchers and educators of the Sanskrit language and its literatures, and of the history, religion and cultures of premodern South Asia.
The theme of WSC2021 will be ‘Future Directions’. We want to take this opportunity to look forward with strength and optimism to imagine together where Sanskrit studies might be headed in the decades to come. How will globalisation, information technology, new theoretical approaches and interdisciplinary interactions shape our work in future
