IFP's Indology Department is coordinating the pilot mission of a Container Laboratory which will be stationed in Pondicherry in 2023, as part of the Palm-leaf Manuscript Profiling Initiative (PLMPI) of the Centre for Study of Manuscript Cultures (CSMC), University of Hamburg. A seminar series is planned to familiarise IFP researchers across all departments with the multiple analytical techniques that will be deployed within the lab. The aims are to explain in detail how each technique will be useful to the study of palm-leaf manuscripts, and discuss how they could be used by IFP researchers and students to develop small parallel projects using these techniques.
Dr. Sebastian Bosch of the Centre for Study of Manuscript Cultures, will present his work "Non-/minimally invasive on-site analysis of palm-leaf manuscripts". The attached poster provides the talk abstract and speaker bio.

Date and Time: Monday, 22 August 2022, 15:00 (IST) | 11:30 (CET)

Location: Coromandel Room, IFP
