Overview

Notes from a Mandala gathers together current work in the history, ethnography and textual study of religions in honor of the career of Wendy Doniger. Its authors are a new generation of leading scholars whose work falls in the interstices between the traditional disciplines: gender studies; the history of sexuality; the role of textual study and translation in the early twenty-first century; the borders between myth and literature; and the place between ethnography and history of religions. Whether they are about history of religions, sexuality, politics, cross-cultural translation, or the slipperiness of categories, these essays honor a woman who has given many in the field a vocabulary for true scholarly conversation.
