Message from the Director
I am delighted to inform you that applications are now open for a new SOAS summer school, ‘South Asia: Diversity, Democracy, and Discord’. The course will run for 3 weeks from 22 July 2019 to 09 August 2019. This course is open for students, professionals and practitioners.
Our summer school at SOAS is the only one of its kind in the United Kingdom. It is directed and taught by leading scholars who take pride in innovative and enthusiastic teaching. This is an opportunity to understand the changing relationship of South Asia with the world and to critically engage with new theories about South Asian politics and society.
In our discussions, we will encourage students to think about the political aspirations and agency of almost two billion people in South Asia, and to understand how poverty, diversity, and regional rivalries shape domestic, regional and international challenges and opportunities. Our approach is firmly inter-disciplinary, drawing on the best of political science, history, security studies, anthropology, economics, art and film studies. Read more...
