New Developments in the South Asia Field
Over the last few years, the U of M has witnessed a virtual revamping of South Asian studies. New exciting courses, influential faculty members, a very dynamic bi-weekly seminar series, strong graduate students, and critical language offerings have all made the U of M a leading institution in the country for the field of South Asian studies.
ALL is happy to announce key developments that enhance our offerings in the South Asia field for the 08-09 academic year. These include courses in one of the most important languages in not only the Asian sphere, but the classical world as a whole: Sanskrit. Students will also be able to take new courses on religion in modern South Asia, women writers, and popular culture, including film.
We encourage students to learn about one of the most dynamic regions of the contemporary world, one which has since ancient times shaped the nature of global cultural flows.
