The University of Glasgow invites applications for its summer school on Introduction to the Malayalam Language (19 June to 12 July 2019).
The summer course aims at providing the basics of Malayalam grammar for undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers interested in any field of study related to the rich cultural, textual, and linguistic heritage of the West Coast of South India.
You might be struggling with performance manuals, palm leaf manuscripts, historical documents, or speech samples that form the database of your research on temple theatre, premodern knowledge systems, Indian Ocean history, or tribes of the Western Ghats.
We are here to help you in acquiring the analytic tools for approaching your database and developing your research accordingly.
You will be required to memorise the Malayalam alphabet beforehand. Tutorials will be sent 2-3 weeks before the starting date of the course.
Deadline for applying: 15 April 2019
