Ines Županov’s research interests include social and cultural history of South Asia, mission history in early modern world, history of science and colonial history. During her fellowship with us she will be working on the comparison between Catholic and Protestant missions in the late 17th and 18th century South Asia. She is in particular interested in missionary production, use and dissemination of “scientific” information, from medicine, botany and astronomy to philology and ethnography. During her fellowship in Bochum she will investigate Jesuit Missions in South Asia during the 16th-18thcentury.
