Opus Magnum grant for Barbara Mittler

Aug 31, 2018

HCTS co-director Prof. Barbara Mittler received an Opus Magnum grant by the Volkswagen Stiftung for her book project “No Parallel? The Fatherly Bodies of Gandhi and Mao”. The book is based on research she conducted in cooperation with Prof. Sumathi Ramaswamy from Duke University and explores the visual trajectories of Mao’s and Gandhi’s global impact during their own days and into the present. The project builds on a long-standing cooperation funded by several funding bodies like the German Research Foundation and the Humboldt Foundation. The Opus Magnum grant aims at providing the space to work intensely on a research monograph that is expected to have an important impact on the scholarly community. It is awarded to professors from the humanities and social sciences.
