Nathaniel Halhed’s ‘A Grammar of the Bengal Language’ (Hoogly, 1778). British Library, T 6863.

This November sees an exciting series of talks taking place at the British Library centering around the British Library’s South Asia collections and the Two Centuries of Indian Print digitisation project. The talks will bring cutting research to the forefront including discursive debates with academics, curators and researchers from the UK and beyond. Themes include lithographs, manuscripts and paintings of courtesans, a deconstruction of the stereotype of Mughals’ eating habits and literary productions from Calcutta.
