The Centre for South Asian Critical Humanities (CSACH) at the University of Toronto promotes greater understanding of South Asia through vibrant and informed conversations of the region’s politics, cultures, histories, languages, religions and peoples.

Prior to 2023, we were known as the Centre for South Asian Civilizations. We changed our name to Centre for South Asian Critical Humanities to reflect our programmatic direction and the focus of our faculty and students.

With faculty expertise in the fields of art history, languages, history, political science and the history of religions, CSACH provides resources for the study of South Asian pasts and their contemporary relevance. The Centre supports a wide range of activities related to the countries of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh including colloquia, public lectures, creative performances, and research affiliations.
