SAP hosts a weekly seminar series that typically meets Mondays at 11:00 a.m. All Spring 2021 events are virtual and require registration. Our annual Tagore Lecture in Modern Indian Literature, held every fall, features an author from South Asia or its diasporas. We partner with Cornell student organizations to bring South Asian musicians, dancers, and other artists for campus performances.
