Workshop organised by MIDA, (Das Moderne Indien in Deutschen Archiven) in Cooperation with the Franckesche Stiftungen, Halle.
Benjamin Schultze (1689–1760) was one of the most prolific, but also most controversial missionaries of the Danish English-Halle Mission, which worked in South India in the 18th and early 19th century. His conversation book »The Large And Renowned Town Of The English Nation In The East-Indies Upon The Coast Of Coromandel, Madras Or Fort St. George, […]« was originally written in English and Telugu (in 1730). Later, in 1750, it appeared in two printed versions, one with a German, the other with an English text. The workshop approaches this missionary source comprehensively from different disciplinary perspectives and explores the potential of a critical source-related publication. It is organized within the DFG-funded long term project Modern India in German Archives in cooperation with the Francke Foundations in Halle (www.francke-halle.de/en).
