Rocher Indology Series

The Rocher Indology Series

published by Oxford University Press, New York.

Books published in the Rocher Indology Series are Open Access publications.

The Series consists of first-rate, cutting-edge research in areas relating to the study of India’s pre-modern past. The volumes in the series represent true advances in the field. The range of subjects includes textual studies, taking “text” to mean not just literary productions, but also inscriptions, archives, and documents in any form, including art and artifacts. The scope of the Series includes archeology, and music, and embraces understudied areas such as mathematics, astronomy, medicine, food sciences, and the natural sciences. Besides monographs, the series welcomes critical editions and translation of pre-modern texts, as well as histories of the field of Indology and its practitioners. Through this Series, the Foundation wishes to foster broad assessments of the state of Indological knowledge and its prospects in the study of issues/periods/areas across multiple modes of documentation and perspectives. It is the intent of the Foundation that this series will help grow the field in depth, breadth and diversity.

Questions and proposals should be addressed to the General Editor.
