Goals: A Center for South Asian Studies

The South Asia Initiative (SAI) envisions a Center for South Asian Studies (CSAS) that would support extensive research and academic study relating to the countries of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Tibet.

The Center would host scholars across the arts, humanities, mathematics and natural sciences, and social sciences whose work directly pertains to matters South Asian.

The Center would sponsor a variety of activities including colloquia, workshops, conferences, public lectures, film series, cultural events and other programs to promote understanding of the cultures and societies of South Asia.

Scholars to be hosted by CSAS

In order to offer comprehensive expertise to the CWRU and the Greater Cleveland community, the CSAS would host scholars from many departments and disciplines, including anthropology, art history, bioethics, classics, dance, economics, history, modern languages and literatures, political science, religious studies, and sociology.
