Avatars, Atheists, and Anarchy: Discovering Religion in India

April 20, 2010 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A public lecture with former UF visiting professor, Dr. Howard J. Resnick.

Professor Resnick received his Ph.D. in Sanskrit and Indian Studies from Harvard University. He has taught the history, philosophies, and religions of India at UCLA, the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, and, most recently, at UF in 2008. As the first westerner in history to successfully translate and comment upon the canonical Bhagavata-purana from within the tradition, he has recently completed his first novel and is now working on a three-part historical novel based on the great Indian epic, the Mahabharata.
