THE CENTRE FOR SOUTH ASIAN STUDIES AT THE ASIAN INSTITUTE
Established in 1981, University of Toronto’s Centre for South Asian Studies (CSAS) fosters academic research, teaching and public discussion on South Asia, and through these, global questions. Now a constitutive unit of the Asian Institute at the Munk School for Global Affairs, and supported by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, with core faculty across the University of Toronto’s three campuses, the Centre is a key international hub for critical conversations across the humanities and social sciences on South Asian worlds, both inside and outside the subcontinent.
The Centre for South Asian Studies hosts a cutting-edge Minor in South Asian Studies, which also has access to the faculty and resources of the groundbreaking Contemporary Asian Studies program.
The Collaborative Master’s and Doctoral Program in South Asian Studies offers students an interdisciplinary overview for the critical study of South Asia as a field of expertise and as a lens through which to read a wide range of global processes.
CSAS students and faculty have access to an extensive collection of library resources on South Asia through the University of Toronto Libraries.
