The Foundations of South Asian Studies (FSAS) Reading Group seeks to establish a shared interdisciplinary basis for dialogue among the various faculty and students working on South Asian Studies at UB.
The FSAS Reading Group bridges divides that naturally emerge among the many scholars working on diverse projects within different disciplines. The FSAS Reading Group will foster collaboration by bringing together a large and diverse community of scholars already working in the field of South Asian Studies at UB and other institutions of higher learning in WNY, establishing a shared framework for communication and scholarly cooperation.
Founded in September 2011, the group has already held five meetings to discuss foundational texts in the field. The Foundations of South Asian Studies Reading Group also serves as a venue for graduate students and faculty to share works in progress, combining our broad range of disciplinary backgrounds with area studies expertise in shaping research into publishable products.
