Curso Livre de Iniciação à Língua Sânscrita


Curso Livre de Iniciação à Língua Sânscrita

Next week, from November 13th to 16th, Faculty of Human Social Sciences (FCHS) offers a Course of Sanskrit, taught by Margarida Assis.

The mutual influences and relations between the East and Western Antiquity are increasingly object of analysis and discussion, opening up new perspectives in the Studies of both areas. Above all, the linguistic comparison is very productive and enriching, taking into account the common Indo-European origin.

This course aims to promote a first contact with the Sanskrit language, conveying its morphosyntactic foundations, and presenting some of its cultural and literary landmarks.

A dossier organized by the teacher will be made available with the necessary materials to follow the sessions.
