Jaina-Prosopography Project Activities
An initial project seminar, organised by the CoJS and hosted by the Acharya Shri Kailasasagarsuri Gyanmandir in Koba on 13-15 February 2017, brought together research teams of SOAS (Dr Peter Flügel, Dr Kornelius Krümpelmann), Koba (Acharya Ajaysagarsuri, Dr Hemantbhai Shah, Dr Kalpana Sheth), Jain Vishva Bharati Institute at Ladnun (Dr Vandana Mehta, Dr S.N. Bhardwaj), the Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute at Pune (Dr Amruta Natu), and The Digital Humanities Institute of the University of Sheffield (Michael Pidd, Katherine Rogers). The seminar focused on the development of a suitable data-model with enhanced analytical possibilities, while assuring compatibility with already existing data-models of digital manuscript catalogues and prosopographical data-bases. In this way suitable electronic data can be imported from other data-bases, which in turn will be able to freely use the Jaina-Prosopography data.
