Wolfson College celebrates International Mother Language Day.
South Asia Research Cluster (SARC)
South Asia contains one-fifth of the world’s population and is a key to planetary social development in the twenty-first century.
India is the world’s largest democracy, an economic and nuclear power, and home to dizzying cultural, religious, and linguistic richness that has made it a laboratory for ideas in social science and humanities.
The South Asia Research Cluster at Wolfson is the natural home for the study of South Asia in Oxford, with a wealth of S. Asia scholars and a truly interdisciplinary approach.
SARC’s strong association with the Contemporary South Asian Studies programme sees it host a stream of international conferences, a contemporary South Asian film series, panels and round tables, book readings, debates and lectures from distinguished visiting scholars and figures in public life. From 2014 the college has hosted the Safraz Lecture on Pakistan, and an increasing diversity of activities from around the SARC region – see the annual report for 2014-15.
Graduate-student-led research workshops have been developed and supported by the cluster. Applications for seed funds of up to £750 are welcome before the deadline of January 1 2016. Contact Barbara Harriss-White.
At Wolfson, the many students and researchers from South Asia contribute to larger conversations on research in their home regions, opening up possibilities for intellectual exchange and cooperation.
The SARC Related Publications page provides a list of works relevant to the study of South Asia, some of which are written by SARC members or speakers at SARC events.
Contact Matthew McCartney to have your name added to the circulation list.
