Polonsky Prize for the Creativity and Originality in the Humanistic Disciplines for Dr. Ofer Peres

The South Asia Institute is happy to announce that Dr. Ofer Peres, Minerva fellow at the Cultural and Religious History Department from 9/2021 to 9/2022, was awarded the 2022 "Polonsky Prize for the Creativity and Originality in the Humanistic Disciplines" from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Dr. Peres received this prestigeous price for his doctoral dissertation titled "In the Trail of the Wailing King: A Cultural Biography of a Traditional Indian Narrative." This dissertation follows the Vedic myth of Urvaśī and Purūravas and its various Sanskrit and Tamil retellings, in three major historical and religious contexts between the twelfth century BCE and the eighteenth century CE. This myth, a story of a human king’s love affair with a celestial nymph, serves as a peephole to the backstage of tradition, through which the author examines how narrative adaptations were used in ancient and medieval India to introduce ritual and theological innovations, validate popular beliefs and practices, and compromise ideological tensions between conflicting social identities.
