Professor Luther Obrock on: “Thinking with the Body: Buddhist Perspectives on Embodiment”
Luther Obrock is Assistant Professor in South Asian Religions at UTM. His research focuses on the religious, political, and intellectual history of Sanskrit literature in second-millennium South Asia. His current research focuses on Indic conceptions of kingship, politics, and religion in the centuries surrounding the stabilization of Islamic rule in the Subcontinent. He is particularly interested in the religious and social history of premodern Kashmir. Luther Obrock is also interested in manuscript and epigraphical evidence for Sanskrit in India. His research is undergirded with close collaborations with scholars throughout India and the rest of the world.
