Invitation to the workshop
The Jaina and the British Collaboration and Conflict, Concealment and Contribution during the 19th and early 20th century
19th./20th. February 2010
University of Tübingen: Institute of Asian and Oriental Studies (AOI)
Department of Indology and Comparative Religion

SOME POSSIBLE QUESTIONS

Are the life histories of influential Jaina merchants exceptional or do they reflect the general history of their local communities?
How do the Jaina perceive their own role in the 19th century? Do oral and written family histories, as produced during the last 150 years, provide answers and questions?
What kind of references to the Jaina community can be traced in journals of British travellers, missionaries, or British East India Company employees during the 19th century?
How do these findings correspond with those data of German sources from the late 19th and early 20th centuries? Why were German indologists more successful in getting access to Jaina manuscripts than the British researchers?

Which – newly formed or existing – Jaina institutions, organisations or outstanding personalities openly promoted the study of sacred texts in spite of the opposition among orthodox Jaina?

To what extent do recent Jaina demands for the legal acknowledgement of their minority status refer to findings of the late 19th century scholars?

Which – newly formed or existing – Jaina institutions, organisations or outstanding personalities successfully promoted the revival of the almost extinct mendicant orders during the 19th century?
