Preceptor in Sanskrit
Anand Venkatkrishnan received his Ph.D. in South Asian Religions from Columbia University (2015). His book in progress, Love in the Time of Scholarship, examines the relationship of bhakti, religion as lived affect, with philosophy as intellectual practice. It also demonstrates how vernacular ways of knowing pushed through the glass ceiling of Sanskrit intellectuality. Anand was most recently appointed Asoke Kumar Sarkar Junior Research Fellow at Balliol College, Oxford (2015-17). He fills his spare time with sports commentary, pop culture, and translations of Sanskrit poetry at http://apurvaracana.tumblr.com.
