David Gellner

David Gellner has been researching religion, culture, ethnicity, and politics in Nepal since 1980. He has written or edited sixteen books and numerous articles on Nepal and/or South Asia. In 2016 he was invited to give the prestigious Mahesh Chandra Regmi Lecture, which he titled 'The Idea of Nepal' (http://soscbaha.org/downloads/mcrl2016.pdf). He still remembers a little of the Sanskrit he studied as a graduate student, and he speaks both Nepali (the national language) and Newari (the Tibeto-Burman language of the Newars, the original inhabitants of the Kathmandu Valley).
