"South Asian Studies at New York University is a collaboration among students and faculty in many departments and schools, hosted by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, supported by NYU Libraries and the Institute for Public Knowledge. We are dedicated to education and research concerning regions spreading across the Silk Road and all around the Indian Ocean, which we think about in global contexts, from ancient times to the present. Our perspective on cultures, histories, economies, and polities in South Asia opens into their wider world rather than enclosing them within conventional boundaries of area studies".
