About - Yigal BRONNER

Yigal Bronner is a Sanskritist trained at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and at the University of Chicago, where he obtained his PhD in 1999 and where he taught for six years, before rejoining the Hebrew University in 2012. His areas of interest include Sanskrit literature and literary history, Sanskrit poetics and its history, and South Asian intellectual history broadly defined. He has dedicated much of his recent work to two towering thinkers from South India, Daṇḍin (ca. 700) and Appayya Dīkṣita (1520–1592), and to a moment of great creativity in ninth-century Kashmir far north.
