The Study of South Asia at the University of Edinburgh

The Centre for South Asian Studies co-ordinates and promotes the teaching of the society, politics and economy of the South Asia sub-continent – the countries of Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka – both contemporary and through recent history. The sub-continent is home to more than a quarter of the world’s population, and houses not only some of the world’s most vibrant economies as well as some of its most enduring conflicts. The main subject areas associated with our work are those of history, human geography, religious studies, social anthropology and sociology is also closely linked to social anthropology – and the growing field of development studies.
