Siddha Studies Network

These pages are designed to serve as a platform for researchers from all disciplines working on Siddha and related traditions in South India, as a platform for exchange and networking, and as a platform where scholars can present their completed and ongoing work and research results. In this way, we hope to provide a unique opportunity to publicize and discuss South Indian traditions and practices in their diverse and multiple forms. While this platform is open to contributions from all disciplines, its main focus is on social sciences and humanities, especially on research in cultural anthropology, indology, history, sociology and religious studies. This platform will hence function as a map of what is going with regard to research on South Indian medicine and its history, alchemical traditions and related philosophies and as a way of getting to know of research and researchers interested in Siddha traditions.
