Note from someone interested in taking a group of students to Hampi
PLEASE RESPOND TO THE EMAIL ADDRESS BELOW IF YOU CAN HELP:
Name: Julie Hiebert, Ph.D.
I spent four days in Hampi this January, which gave me the opportunity to compare the Hampi of today with the Hampi of my memory. I joined George Michell and John Fritz during one their early site expeditions about thirty years ago. I wrote my dissertation (Harvard) on Sanskrit poetry by queens and courtesans of Vijayanagara. I’m writing you to get your advice….. I am in the midst of writing a proposal to take a small (10) group of undergraduate students from St. Edward’s University, Austin, Texas to Hampi next January (2014). Each student conducts a research project while in Hampi. My strengths are in religion, literature, and the arts. I would love to know if you have any on-going needs at Hampi that an undergraduate student, with interests more in line with your site work, might accomplish. Please let me know your thoughts by email.
