South Asia Group
Detail from an illustration to a Ragmala series: "Shankara Ragaputra of Megha Raga," sub-imperial Mughal, North India, c. 1610-20.
A coalition of Liu Institute fellows with South Asia research interests formed the South Asia Group in 2017. The group has become instrumental in guiding the Liu Institute’s growth and focus in this important region.
The South Asia Group reflects our efforts to expand scholarship, connections, and student experiences focused on this area and its people. Spearheaded by Amitava Dutt, Susan Ostermann, and Nikhil Menon, the group is interdisciplinary and open to all faculty and students with an interest in South Asia. Guided by the interests of its members, the South Asia Group hosts a variety of South Asia-related programs throughout the year, including regular seminars, panel discussions, and lecture series, all of which are supported by the Liu Institute. The group also works closely with the Notre Dame Global Center in Mumbai, India, to develop links with local universities and colleges.
Overall, the South Asia Group’s coordinated, faculty-led effort advances the Liu Institute’s strategy to expand its South Asian focus and strengthens its general efforts to promote Asia.
