Urban South Asia Group

Launched in the fall of 2013, this group meets occasionally during the academic year with the goal of bringing together people at Brown with an interest in urban South Asia. The group has two primary activities: 1) small, informal workshops at which ongoing research work on urban South Asia, both at Brown and by visitors, is presented to the group for discussion; 2) key publications and research on urban South Asia are read and discussed. The group includes undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty from the Watson Institute, Anthropology, Political Science and Sociology.
