South Asia Faculty Working Group

The South Asia Faculty Working Group aims to promote public and scholarly engagement with the arts, cultures, politics, religions, history, languages and literatures of South Asia and the South Asian diaspora. By providing a forum for scholars to discuss projects, ideas, and approaches in research and teaching, the working group seeks to deepen understanding of the region on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus and in the surrounding community. The group is supported by contributions from the Center for Global Initiatives and the Carolina Asia Center, with additional funding for specific events from other campus departments.
