KAUAI, HAWAII, August 18, 2007: Hinduism Today is planning a second and third installment of its lesson on Hindu history for sixth grade published in the April, 2007 issue (see URL above). The second lesson will cover the history of Hinduism from 300ce to 1800 ce, and the third from 1800 ce to the present.

We are seeking a qualified researcher to develop the basic material for the lessons. The researcher would do a preliminary analysis of the time periods and propose the different religious personalities, events, trends, (philosophical, practical, ritual) that occur in the time frame, against a light backdrop of political developments of the time--enough to give context to what is happening in the religion.

Then, following an approved outline, the researcher would provide in-depth material on the selected subjects. This assignment does not involve writing the final lesson text, only providing well-researched presentations of the variou s topics, which will then be adapted for presentation at the sixth grade by another writer. The resulting lessons will be published as Educational Insight sections in Hinduism Today.

Compensation for this assignment is possible, and would depend upon the qualifications of the researcher and the successful completion of the assignment to the satisfaction of Hinduism Today's editors. The project likely will require eight weeks of full-time work. Those interested may write ar@hindu.org with their cv, example of their research work and compensation expectations.
