Meet the UDRs!
Meet Rohan Lal and Avanti Mohan, 2016-2017 UDRs for South Asian Studies!
The South Asian Studies Program offers a minor (open to students in any major) for those who wish to structure their studies of South Asia or the South Asian Diaspora. The minor offers an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the literatures, histories, societies, cultures, religions, arts and contemporary importance of South Asia and diasporic South Asian communities.
South Asia, one of the world’s most populous and significant regions, includes the modern nations of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, and in certain contexts Afghanistan, Maldives, Myanmar and Tibet. Students completing the minor will come away with a strong understanding of the intellectual, cultural, political, economic and social developments at key periods in South Asia’s history and in the contemporary era.
