The growth in interdisciplinary, and more recently, cross-disciplinary study demonstrates the use of promoting changes in established fields. In a slightly different manner, the Fall South Asia seminar focuses on the importance of bridging the supposed divide between the study of the past and the present. Indeed, one aspect for all who work with South Asia is the increasing importance of contemporary developments, but the reverse is also true, namely, the role of the past in the consideration of the present.
The SAI seminar series features lectures by distinguished South Asian specialists from UT and abroad. Regular seminars occur on Thursdays at 3:30 pm, preceded by a reception at 3:00 pm, in the Meyerson Conference Room (WCH 4.118).
