Biographical Note

Attipat Krishnaswami Ramanujan (1929-1993) was an interdisciplinary scholar and transnational figure who worked as a poet, translator, linguist, and folklorist.

Ramanujan received a BA and MA in English Literature from the University of Mysore, after which he taught at various universities in South India. In 1958, he received a graduate diploma in Theoretical Linguistics from Deccan University in Poona. He arrivied in the United States in 1959, and received a Ph.D. in Linguistics from Indiana University in 1963.

In 1962, Ramanujan became an assistant professor at the University of Chicago. At the university, he was instrumental in developing the South Asian Studies program and worked with the South Asian Languages and Civilization department, the Linguistics department, and the Committee on Social Thought. Although he remained affiliated with the University of Chicago for the rest of his life, Ramanujan also taught at other universities in the United States, including the University of Wisconsin, Harvard, the University of Michigan, University of California at Berkeley, and Carleton College.

Ramanujan translated the classical and modern literature of South Asia, as well as folk tales and songs. Much of his work focused on South Indian languages such as Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. Published works include

A Flowering Tree and Other Oral Tales from India (1997); Folktales from India: Oral Tales from (1991);The Interior Landscape: Love Poems from a Classical Tamil Anthology (1967); Poems of Love and War: From the Eight Anthologies and the Ten Long Poems of Classical Tamil (1985) and Speaking of Siva (1973). As a poet, Ramanujan wrote primarily in English, often on transcultural themes. Collections of his own poetry include The Striders (1966); Hokkulalli Huvilla (1969); Relations (1971); Selected Poems (1976); and Second Sight (1986). Ramanujan also contributed to cultural theories of South Asia with works such as "Is there an Indian Way of Thinking?" (1990).

In 1976, the government of India awarded Ramanujan the title “Padma Sri.” In 1983, Ramanujan was appointed William E. Colvin Professor at the University of Chicago, and was also awarded a MacArthur Prize Fellowship.

Ramanujan died in Chicago on July 13, 1993.

Series IV: Research, Translations and Writings

This series contains Ramanujan's literary writing and scholarship in a variety of disciplines. Materials date from 1952-1995 and are divided into seven subseries:

Subseries 1: Essays and Articles, contains material related to Ramanujan's shorter critical and scholarly writings on a variety of subjects, including folklore, linguistics, poetry, poetics, religion, and translation theory. There are manuscripts, drafts, reprints, periodicals, clippings, notes, and related correspondence. Files are organized alphabetically by title.

Subseries 2: Linguistics, contains manuscripts, notes, research proposals, and other material related to Ramanujan's study of linguistics. This series includes a copy of his dissertation, and several files on the Kannada, Malayalam and Tamil languages. Many files are undated, but are likely to date from the early to mid-1960s. Files are organized alphabetically.

Subseries 3: Folklore, contains translations and transcriptions of folk tales, songs and other folklore of South Asia, as well as secondary research on South Asian folklore. There are drafts of the folklore anthology A Flowering Tree and Other Oral Tales from India and related translations of Kannada language folk tales. Also included are photocopies of articles and book essays on South Asian folklore research; much of this material consists of copies of The Indian Antiquary from circa 1880s-1920s.

Subseries 4: Verse, contains Ramanujan's own poetry, as well as his translations and editions of South Asian poetry and song. There are also translations of poetry and songs by other scholars. Materials include manuscripts, drafts, notes and publications. Some files also contain related correspondence and lecture notes. There are substantial files on anthologies such as The Interior Landscape: Love Poems from a Classical Tamil Anthology; Relations; Poems of Love and War: From the Eight Anthologies and the Ten Long Poems of Classical Tamil; and the Oxford Anthology of Modern Indian Poetry. Files are organized chronologically, with undated materials at the end of the subseries. An oversize musical score and accompanying lyrics have been transferred to SeriesVII.

Subseries 5: Fiction, contains Ramanujan's fiction writing, collaborative writing with colleagues, and translations of fiction by other writers. Files are organized chronologically, with undated material at the end of the subseries.

Subseries 6: Notes, contains notebooks, note cards and loose notes kept by Ramanujan. There are notes on a variety of scholarly subjects that interested Ramanujan. Many notes relate to research and translation work represented in Subseries 1-4. There are also course notes from Ramanujan's education in India. Files are organized chronologically, with undated material at the end of the subseries.

Subseries 7: Writings by Others, contains manuscripts and publications by writers other than Ramanujan. Included is a copy of Robert Bly's A Little Book on the Human Shadow inscribed by the author to Ramanujan. Files are arranged alphabetically by author or title. Unidentified writings, many consisting of photocopies of South Asian language publications, are at the end of the subseries, along with a file of general newspaper clippings.
