Centre for South Asian Civilizations

The Centre for South Asian Civilizations (CSAC) at the University of Toronto promotes greater understanding of South Asia through vibrant and informed conversations and explorations of the region’s cultures, histories, languages, religions, and peoples. With faculty expertise in the fields of archaeology, art history, languages, history, and the history of religions, CSAC provides resources for the study of South Asian pasts and their contemporary relevance. With the rise of the political, economic, and cultural influence of South Asia, knowledge of this region and its history is of increasing global relevance, and the Centre supports a wide range of activities related to the countries of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Iran, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, including colloquia, public lectures, creative performances, research affiliations, and study abroad opportunities.
