Jaina Studies at Ghent University

The Department of languages and cultures at Ghent University has seen several decades of Jaina studies.

At present members of the Jaina Studies group, further embedded in the UGent research group SANGH, work on projects that span the entire spectrum of Jainism, from history to philosophy and beyond.

Courses on Jainism are also taught at Ghent University.

*NEW* Our department has created an introductory video series on Jainism for Dutch, French and German audiences.


If you are interested in our work or would like to know about pursuing a degree or research project (doctoral or postdoc) with us, feel free to contact Prof. Eva De Clercq or Prof. Tine Vekemans
