Subject: Summer Language Intensives in Sanskrit and Tibetan at the Mangalam
Research Center, Berkeley
Date: March 1, 2013
From: Jack Petranker

This program was previously announced one month ago. Since then, the
deadline for applications has been changed to March 15; applicants will be
notified by April 15. Apologies for the short notice of this change: if this
deadline poses a difficulty for anyone, let us know and we may be able to
make accommodations.


This summer Mangalam Research Center for Buddhist Languages will again offer
intensive 7-week language programs in both Classical Sanskrit and Classical
Tibetan. The programs are designed to provide the equivalent of a first-year
university-level language program in each language.

Both courses meet four hours a day, five days a week. Lessons will be
reinforced with daily assignments that will insure a working understanding
of the concepts and forms discussed in class. The programs are ideal for
students at the graduate and advanced undergraduate level, as well as for
enthusiasts in South Asian humanities or linguists and classicists
interested in learning the basics of either of these influential ancient

The Sanskrit course will be taught by Dr. Ligeia Lugli. Dr. Lugli received
her Ph.D. in Buddhist Studies from the School of Oriental and African
Studies (SOAS) at the University of London. She went on to serve as a
Research Associate at SOAS and a postdoctoral fellow in the Śāstravid
Project at the University of Durham before joining Mangalam Research Center
as a postdoctoral fellow.

The Tibetan course will be taught by Dr. Alberto Todeschini, who also taught
the intensive program last summer. Dr. Todeschini received his Ph.D. in
Buddhist Studies from the University of Virginia. He has studied and taught
Tibetan and a number of other Asian languages at the University of London’s
School of Oriental and African Studies, the University of Lausanne
(Switzerland), Kathmandu University (Nepal), Ryukoku University (Japan), and
the University of Virginia, as well as at Mangalam Research Center.

Applications for both these programs are due by March 15, and applicants
will be notified by April 15. For further information, see or contact
